The rocky spur of the castle was fortified by the Austrians in 1914 with artillery (80 and 100 caliber) in connection with the fortresses of Nago. This spot enjoys exceptional panoramic view. In the underlying wood we find the ruins of an enormous lime wall (probably a Roman tower) with parts of a staircase in red stone. Clay tiles, Roman coins and pottery were unearthed here, and represent proof of the Roman presence. « less

The largest “pots” can be reached by branching off to the left from the main road from Torbole to Nago, just before the parking, or along a trail heading to Nago from the end of Via Strada Granda in Torbole.Lenght: 1.5 kmTime: 1 hLevel: Easy « less

A bronze plaque commemorates a daring undertaking by the Venetians in 1439: sailing up the River Adige to Ravazzone, they then transported large galleys and a number of small boats via the land route and then down the steep path to Torbole, where they were moored again to face the Visconti fleet in battle. It is a lovely stroll among the olive trees and there is a marvellous view of Lake Garda. « less

From the Park’s grassy area head south, for a spectacular hike along the Busatte–Tempesta trail, a nature route overhanging the lake about 4 km, including parts on metal stairs with a total of 400 steps.
