A short urban trail to discover the historic centre of Arco, perfect for anybody on their first visit to Garda Trentino who wants to find out more about the town.
Arco is a small town nestled about a rocky outcrop crowned by the ruins of the castle, the symbol of the town. The castle dates back to the year one thousand, but archaeological excavations on the site unearthed traces of human presence well before the medieval period.
Thanks to the mild climate, pure healthy air and location a short distance from Lake Garda, Arco has over the years become a famous health resort, particularly popular with the Habsburg nobility at the turn of the twentieth century.
This stroll links up the main monuments in the historic centre of the town with an itinerary that is easy and accessible to all, passing through the different historical periods of the town. From Renaissance palaces to Central European elegance, Arco truly offers an incredible variety and range for sightseeing.
Warning! The path up the hill to the Castle is not accessible to buggies and wheelchairs.
Arco is the birthplace of the Divisionist painter Giovanni Segantini and there is a statue in the town park to commemorate him.
The telephone number for the emergency services is 112.
