Nature and Sport
Lake Garda, an easy reach from Rovereto is known internationally for its beauty, walks and the chance to enjoy a variety of sports. ‘Ora del Garda’, the characteristic wind that comes from the South in the early afternoons, makes the lake an ideal spot for windsurfing, kite-surfing and sailing. Pleasant places to visit on the lake include Arco, Riva and Torbole (lunch at the "La Terrazza"), Malcesine, Limone, Garda (lunch at the 'Graspo'), Bardolino (dinner at the ‘Giardino delle Esperidi’) and there are many scenic walks along the lake.
The mountains surrounding the lake are frequented by those who love climbing, mountain-biking and trekking while the rivers and nearby lakes are ideal for canyoning.
Half an hour from Rovereto is the Folgaria Plateau, frequented by skiing and golfing enthusiasts, and the Brentonico Plateau, which has family friendly ski resorts (with slopes suitable for all skiing abilities) and beautiful walks to discover the flora of Mount Baldo.
