Arco

Arco holidays

Perched on the northern edge of Lake Garda, Arco is a breath of fresh air. Literally. Tucked into lush mountains, it’s known as ‘Nizza del Trentino’ or ‘natural clinic’. With a charming mish mash of buildings, and the castle set high above the town on a cliff, it’s as beautiful as it is good for the soul.

Natural wonders

When it comes to celebrating Italy’s stunning landscapes, Arco is the place to be. From here, the stunning Sarca valley is yours to explore. From stunning walks through the lush forest, to relaxing by the river, you can easily lose a day wandering this beautiful part of the world.

Visit the castle

The muse of artist Albrecht Dürer, and so many visitors, Arco Castle is a beauty. It sits on a sheer cliff high above the town, and Lake Garda offers a spectacular backdrop for the fortress. Once you’ve been to the top, head further down to visit the lower Palace where you can see 14th-century frescoes.

Varone Waterfalls

Not far from Arco are the Varone Waterfalls. With paths carved through the caves, you can head out on a tour through the spectacular caverns, and see waterfalls cascading through them. After all that, head outside and explore the colourful botanic gardens.
