Torri del Benaco is a village of ancient origin, as demonstrated by the rock engravings on Monte Luppia and the flint objects found near the present-day harbour. The city centre, enclosed between the Castello Scaligero and the elegant parish church, retains the charm of a medieval village. The locality of Pai stretches from the lake shore towards the hillside, literally immersed in a sea of olive trees. Albisano, in the hill area, is a quiet, verdant balcony overlooking the blue of Lake Garda. Crero is an ancient settlement among olive groves, where time seems to have stopped. Tourist development has made Torri one of the most exclusive resorts on the lake, with prestigious guests over the centuries, such as André Gide, Stephen Spender, Laurence Olivier, Vivien Leigh, Maria Callas, Jaques Picare, and King Juan Carlos of Spain.

We thought about a site where the main hiking trails could be listed together with walk paths and mountain-biking trails, that meander between coves with beautiful beaches and blooming landscapes between the green lush of the olive trees and the blue of the lake. An invitation for those who love sports in the open air to plunge in the nature of the Veneto side of Lake Garda and its rich hinterland: a multifaceted experience that is never allowed to become boring.
The vast and varied territory of the Riviera degli Olivi offers routes for all needs and for all levels. Paths that will make you discover natural jewels, historical villages that follow one another in breathtaking views, castles, coves, shores, hills and mountains where the impressive and uncontaminated nature reveals itself through trails and routes marked among the woods. Choose the trip that suits you most and discover a territory which is easy to fall in love with due to the sensations it can cause thanks to its perfumes, colours, the climate, the flavours of the wine and food tradition and the fascinating and unforgettable sunsets on the lake.
Everyone will have the possibility to take lovely walks t or cycle on our beautiful lakefront.
Thanks to the beauty of the landscape and to the welcome of hoteliers from the Garda area, it will always be a great experience!
