We'd planned to take a bus to Riva at the top of Lake Garda. At Hotel Royal Village in Limone they gave us the times and told us the bus left from the tourist information office. The hotel staff checked to see if we knew where the tourist office was but we'd seen it in the town near the shore of Lake Garda. After a lazy breakfast in the hotel we left with just enough time to catch the bus.
It was only when we got down to the lake that we realised there was no way a bus could get down these tiny streets. We checked the map and found another tourist information office on the Gardesana Occidentale road, above the old town in Limone, back up the hill where we'd come from and not far from our hotel. With no chance of catching the bus we decided to go up Lake Garda to Riva by boat.
This site is being developed so please be patient with us. We'd love to get back to take more pictures of Riva del Garda to do the beautiful town a little more justice. Visiting Riva for only a few hours on an unusually rainy day is perhaps not fair!
