Owner description: One follows via Gargnano (Gardesana Occidentale National Road SS 45bis) from the centre of Riva heading towards Limone. On the right before the tunnel, take the old road which once linked Riva del Garda with the Ledro Valley. From there one can enjoy breathtaking panoramas for once in a lifetime photo opportunities.

“Very interesting, very steep.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

A very pleasant level walk for the first half mile out of Nago - it then drops steeply towards the lake - for the fit only. Caution is advised as 'off road' cyclists use it for a slow, painful(?) climb and a VERY fast drop towards the lake - be careful. There are other walks that branch off - but like everything in this very beautiful area a 4x4 or fitness is a MUST.

“Great track for a run”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

While staying in Riva I used this a few times when I went out for a run, steady climb on the way out, but great on the way back, not to mention the fabulous views across the lake and back to Riva.

“Stunning scenery!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

A dramatic and exhilarating walk along a well kept path but watch out for mountain bikers .We walked to Pregasina and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Highly recommended.

“Last minute visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Due to time constraints we only got to visit the church on the last day. What a stunning church it is, with a wonderful tiled floor and beautiful side altars.
