Pregasina

There’s a wonderful hiking path linking Riva del Garda to Pregasina. It climbs upwards along the precipitous cliffs that lurch from the western banks of the lake. As it goes, it zags through groves of crocuses and juniper, pine and periwinkles, as panoramic views of the water and the mountains to the west unfold. Then you reach Pregasina itself.

Stop for a coffee (or a cold beer) in the Hotel Ristorante Panorama before heading back to Riva.
