We climbed up the 160+ steps after obtaining our concessionary tickets (€1 for over 65s) and loved the views of the town from the top. Lovely place to take photos and an interesting old bell. There are regular chimes from the clock tower which are startling if you are up there! If you are staying nearby, the chimes stop between... More

It's only €2 to climb the tower and the 165 steps are quite open and sturdy. It's spacious so you don't feel hemmed in so you can stop and rest if you need to. The view from the top is very nice - overlooking all of Riva and the lake. It wasn't busy at all when I visited in August.

We can't believe that it has taken us four visits to Riva before climbing to the top of this tower. Great value for money and fabulous views of one of our favourite holiday destinations.

Ok, so two euros each is the good news, the 165 odd stairs not so good, but well worth the effort for some good views of the town and the northern end of the lake. It is a hike if you are slightly unfit, but stairs are manageable and in good state. Recommended.

Great views from the top of the tower over the lake and the rooftops of Riva del Garda and the mountains.

If you're ok with closed spaces and ascending a 150+ wooden stepped staircase, then it's worth the 10 minutes it will take you to get up there so that you can enjoy the views of the town and the lake and get some nice photos. An enjoyable attraction for everyone but also an alternative option for anyone who would like... More

A little walk to go to the top but it is worth the climb. Of the top you have a nice view of riva. The clocks are also nice and the tower is still in very good shape

This tower is located in the centre. You pay about €1 each at the entrance. When you eventually make it up the stairs which can be a little tiring you are overwhelmed by the views all around you. Well worth doing!
