This is the focal point of Riva, a large stone clock tower. On of the high points of Riva, it is almost impossible to visit Riva without either seeing it from afar or stumble upon it on your wondering around.

Beautiful stone clock tower adorns the adjoining plaza. The ability to construct these structures so long ago is simply amazing.

The Apponale Tower stands out from the colorful buildings surrounding the square. It makes a nice backdrop for a sit down with a gelato in the sunshine. From top you will get a nice panoramic view over Riva and the lake.

A nice, medieval tower in Piazza 3 di Novembre which you will see as soon as you arrive by boat on the lake.

This "torre", gives the amazing piazza special look on top of what it has. walking here brings you to think about all the architects and builders on the old days. They managed building such admired sites - in which the new generations can enjoy.

The tower offers fantastic views over the town and northern end of the lake. The climb is not particularly demanding but it may be a good idea not to be at the top when the bell strikes the hour!

You can't miss this while you are in the lake side of Riva. Low entrance fee and not so hard to climb. Good views around Riva. You can't compare the views from here to that of Bastione or Santa Barbara but still it is a...More
