History, art, archaeology

ATTENTION: The opening of cultural and tourist sites, access to them, to public transport and to the services described in these pages is governed by the containment measures put in place by the government authorities and the Autonomous Province of Trento to deal with the COVID-19 health emergency. The rules may vary over time and provide for the application of different security measures — from closure, to social distancing, to the mandatory use of personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks.

We therefore ask you to contact the service managers directly for updated information on how to gain access.

The treasures of Riva del Garda and Arco, loved by Goethe, Kafka and Thomas Mann. The MAG, Museo Alto Garda, comprises the Museum of Riva del Garda and the Galleria Civica G. Segantini [G. Segantini Civic Gallery] in Arco.

The Rocca of Riva del Garda, mirrored in the lake, houses the Museum with its permanent sections and exhibitions, and the workshop-exhibiting route INvento for children and families.

Here the extraordinary eight statues-stelae from the 3rd millennium B.C. are kept

The Picture Gallery displays Garda landscapes depicted by 19th century painters who were fascinated by them, as well as works by Pietro Ricchi, Vincenzo Vela and Francesco Hayez. Also, relics from the Della Scala, Visconti and Venice rule periods.
