Black & White Wednesday – # 16 (en)

The season is slowly ending, every day another Hotel closes.
Bars and restaurants is more and more empty.
I enjoy this last days, the weather has been good, so
me and the last tourist have had the Garda Lake almost on our own.
Monday I didn’t do my usual trekking from Tempesta to Torbole, because I had a family with a little girl.
So I suggested an easier walk,along the beach from Torbole to Riva.

view of the lake from the beach of Arco

It was beautiful!
The beach was empty, no people where around.
When we got to Riva, we went up to the Bastione
A tower made by the Venetians in 1508.
From there you have wonderful view over the town of
Riva, the MOnte Brione – 376mt,
(it is in the middle between Torbole and Riva)
and the mountains behind.
On the left Monte Stivo – 2058mt, Monte Velo – 1136mt
Passo San Giovanni – 286mt and Altissimo di Nago -2078mt,
on the right.

Riva, Monte Brione, Monte Stivo, MOnte Velo and Altissimo di Nago in the back

Also in Riva it is difficult to find a bar open now.
Most of them are closed.

Caffè Città

But it didn’t matter, we strolled around in the vicoli and in the piazzas and then slowly turned back home again.
Tower of Palazzo Pretorio
See you next season. 🙂

The photos were shot in color and then converted to black and white.


This is my submission to week #16 edition of

    Grazie SuperAle, le ultime 3 le ho fatto mentre correvo prendere il pullman.
    Ti pareva che non sbagliasse fermata?
    Così ho corso, ululato e agitato la macchinetta digi nell’aria per fermarlo. hahahaha
    Che disaster che sono!
    ps. yes you will! 😉
