Climbed up via route A the steepest climb on a dull morning but by the time we got up there the clouds had disappeared and the view of Garda and Bardolino were worth it.

There are different routes to climb La Rocca, some easier than others. We had a charming Swedish guide who kept us at a steady but fair pace and we covered the 7k from Garda to Bardolino and back along the coast to Garda without any...More

This is a great walk, from behind the church in Garda. My wife an I walked to top, and were surprised at the fantastic views over lake and towns. The effort is well repaid when you arrive at the top. Another short walk to the...More

La Rocca stand on Lake Garda, it is worth the fairly steep walk up for the views. We started behind the church, initially steps and fairly steep, giving way to paths. Once at the top the views are stunning. Well worth the walk.

We took a morning hike from Garda, following the road near Bikapi hostel and then winding up zigzag steps under the shade of trees. The steps are steep and hard work, but you soon arrive at a forest junction with a couple of picnic benches....More
