A long walk up but the views are stunning when you get there. Had a beer and a Pizza in the restaurant when we arrived and sat outside enjoying the view while we ate. Well worth the walk

Looks close but a bit of long walk say 20mins along zig zag pathway but well worth the effort for the views across Riva and Lake Garda. Lots of puffing from us and others undertaking this gentle climb.

Strenuous but completely doable hike up to the bastione overlooking Riva. The hike and view alone are worth it. Nice to have a restaurant there even if the pasta portion seemed small for the price paid. To me the hike and view are five stars....More

Yes but it would not be easy. It is quite a long way and parts of it are steep.

It's a steadily steep climb up, but on a well-surfaced trail.
