This is a great meeting point before entering the gate. You can find parkin space close to the gate and the old city starts immediately once passed the gates.

Always pleasant to explore the old town and the ancient city walls and gates. This is one of the four gates that are still in the old city center.

Just another part of the old town to explore and come away with memories. To enjoy Riva del Garda town you must be prepared to use your legs and eyes for a full Italian expieriance.

This archway into the town is a bit of history. The town itself is lovely with lots of places to sit or have a coffee. There are quite a few shops and market stalls. There also is a lovely local church. Worth a visit.

This city gate is in a very pretty part of town, a beautiful church is just down the street. It seemed to be a lively area with many stores and restaurants near.

Lovely part of the old town. The architecture in Italy is the best in the world. It's amazing to see old and intact architecture. Great old town to walk around with a camera.

This is a must make sure you get the directions to it before you visit. Difficult to find if not prepared.
