We stayed at Riva del Garda for a week, in an apartment 10 minutes walk north of the bus station, near a supermarket and regional products centre ( X marks the approx. spot)

Sunday 8th June, Day 3 – we walked to Porto San Nicolo and then part way up Monte Brione. We returned to the lake and walked along the lake shore to Riva del Garda, through the old town and back to ‘home’. Our walk is marked in yellow
