Christmas in Riva del Garda

At Christmas time, Riva del Garda gets dressed with elegance, lights and a lot of flavour in a proper zero-mile delicacy village.

Christmas in Garda Trentino is in the spirit of warm shimmering lights that mirror in the waters of Italy’s biggest lake.

Heaps of activities you could live in the spirit of Santa, starting from… Santa’s house in Riva del Garda, the Christmas markets in Arco with all the fascination of some Habsburg vibes and also a huge tree in the middle of the majestic square. Or also a madeinGardaTrentino flavour village. Which one? The Christmas Village “Di Gusto in Gusto” in Riva del Garda!


Here you could discover, taste and purchase the local excellences surrounded by a warm and merry atmosphere. The Christmas markets will open its doors on December, the 2nd 2017 and the cozy wooden stalls on Piazza Garibaldi and Piazza Cesare Battisti (in front of the Rocca, symbol of Riva del Garda) will host the best zero-mile kilometers that could be not only tasted but also purchased. Maybe for a tasty gift to place under the Christmas tree!

Typical cheese, honey, wines, lake fish (the trout hamburgers are delectable and you can eat them on the fly!). A proper street food to taste together with the whole family. Because Christmas means mainly sharing!

Producers, restauranteurs, wineries, all together to hold out the magic of Christmas and the flavours of Garda in a unique “village” that celebrates both the taste and the tradition. At Christmas time we indulge in some overindulgence, you know that.

And if it was overindulgence without overindulgence? With the village “Di Gusto in Gusto” it’s exactly this. The genuine products and the local excellences (have you already tried the Garda Trentino extra virgin olive oil must suggested by the Agraria shop in Riva?!) chimed one with the other, and this union can’t be anything else than “holy” like the upcoming Christmas.

Not only tasting will involve the visitors, but also shows and road entertainment in the town centre of Riva del Garda: music, kids entertainment, dancing fountains, Christmas vibes and lights! And while you are strolling around tasting local delicacies, the lake is always there to gift you with some emotions. And you will cry out: “Santa, what a nice view!”
