Having visited Riva, staying in a hotel on the outskirts we were a little disappointed that it didn't feel like the proper Italy. However, this was opinion was soon changed, after we had found the main piazza. This was the best place to be in...More

This was a very cheap activity and one of the highlights of our visit. We had been told that when the bell rings it is very noisy if you are up there. However, the bell doesn't ring for long and isn't too noisy. The view...More

Ask when booking your hotel if they provide the Trentino Guest Card. Ours was included. Bring it and you will all get in free. It's just a short visit, great diversion when strolling around town or shopping and trying to keep kids happy.

For the small fee, it is really worth going to the top of the Torre, the views are great over Riva. It was very windy when we were there but this added to the fun.

Very good views over the town, lots of steps and very noisy when the bell rings. Worth the walk up the steps for the views over the town and the od square.

Nothing special here but worth a quick visit. Avoid being up there on the hour though as someone before us told us of their shocking experience.

We did not go up the tower but it adds to the view of the town as it is dated back to 1200 AD or around that time

Nothing really special here - except the very nice view over the roofs of Riva. Shocking experience if you are up there when the bells ring!

Riva has lots of interesting narrow streets that you can spend a good couple of hours walking around. The ferry can be picked up from here, booking only on the day you travel. Lots of benches to sit and look out across the lake, great...More
