About
Together with the lake, one of the characteristic elements of the Garda Trentino landscape is the rock of Arco, dominating the plain of the River Sarca at the point where it widens. Three paths lead to the castle, which was the residence of the Arco...more

A “must do” if in town and feeling up to it. You can access it via footpaths and steps from various points in town. Takes about 20 minutes. You get to first level where there is a nice tower and pretty good views. At that...More

Very nice castle. The route takes about 15 min to reach it. But they are closing sales of tickets before 17.30 so you have to be earlier. Views from above are super!

We enjoyed our visit to this very interesting castle. Parked our car in an unusual but free car park in amongst many olive trees. It is a very steep climb to the castle and to be honest some areas would not be allowed if this...More

Well worth the hike up to the castle. It's a bit of a climb in parts. Castle is very interesting and quite a bit to look around. Prices are fairly reasonable. Great views over Riva, Arco and Torbole.

Take a trip to the top of the mountain and see the sunset. It's a bit of a walk up steep paths, but take some water and go for it. Beautiful views and well worth it.

Beautiful view over Arco after a lovely walk up through the olive groves. You can deserve a gelato on your walk back down in to the town

Quite a steep trek up to the castle from the town but the surface is well paved so anyone should be able to go up (just how long will vary depending on age/fitness etc!). The few bits of the castle ruins left are nice but...More
