About
The Lombardy Region officially recognised the Nature Reserve of Manerba del Garda ("Della Rocca, del Sasso e Parco Lacuale") with a regional resolution in April 2016. The park covers a territory of approximately 1,160,000 m2 (include meadows, woodland, trails, vineyards and olive groves), as well as 850,000 m2 of the lake itself. The Reserve was established to preserve and promote the ecosystem and landscape, historical and archeological sites, as well as to support such activities as education and understanding, preservation and divulgation of a unique environment, remarkable for both its history and biodiversity. The Valtenesi Archeological Museum within the Reserve is the information centre for visitor who wish to understand why throughout history humans have chosen to settle in this spectacular setting. The Reserve is always open to the public.

Amazing views and well worth the trek up the hill. There’s a car park half way up for those driving. There’s also a bar and museum, can’t comment on that as it was closed on the day we went up and is every Tuesday. Useful history and stories in Italian,German and English at various stages. Amazing views. They will take your breath away.

Amazing views and well worth it!
Jul 2018 • Family
We found this place in a local tourist brochure, it wasn’t included in our Rough Guide. We were so glad to have found it. It is on the top of a hill looking straight at the first row of Alps and right down the northern end of Lake Garda. You are up high and feel like you are right in the view. There are also stunning views of the beaches and islands below.

The rocca is a ruin but these make good climbing fun for the kids.

The walk from the car park to the top takes five to ten minutes but the local tourist centre promotes walks around the base of the hill which are up to 6km long.

We went in the recent hot spell and it was 36 degrees so take a hat and some water. (As kiwis used to living in a place with harsh sun we were amazed we were the only ones wearing hats!) There is also a handy cafe back at the car park which has ice blocks and cool drinks which came in very handy!

The building was marked Museum but we concluded that this wasn’t open or had closed.

In all, this place is spectacular and we were so glad we went. Definitely the most stunning view of our trip and even better because it is a little hard to find on windy roads and this seemed to have deterred the hordes on the lidos below!

Breathtaking views

Took the walk from Solarolo to the Rocca di Manerba. Was worth the walk as the scenery at the end is breath taking with views of the lake and mountains stretching as far as the eye can see. Nature at its best. Recommended

Great walk and excellent views
Jul 2017 • Solo
Had several walks into the area. Spectacular views from the Manerba Rock, and great trekking/running routes around the area. Easy accessable with car (with parking) and by bike or walking. Several spectacular view points arount the area. Just something you would not like to miss.

Little tourists, pure and simple

To find the Rocca di Manerba a navigator can help you much. The streets to this point are very small (some are one-way). Next to the Museum is parking space. From there you walk up a hardened steep road for 600m (only with wheelchair if you have push aid, or motor aid), to the ruins of a medieval castle. Here are a few signs with information. After another 200m wooden staircase you can enjoy a wonderful view on Garda Lake (on a clear day!) at 800m above sea level. Some bike up this hill.
We did not visit the museum, it seems to have one exhibition room. Next to it is a small restaurant for a drink and a small lunch (but it took some time before our order was delivered). Museum and terrace are accessible with wheelchair.
(In the afternoon we went down the road to the beach with Sup Garda).

Interesting day out
Jan 2017 • Couples
The park and the smallish museum are a great place to visit when you're tired of just lying on the lakefront catching sun. There are amazing views over the lake and you get a mini work-out climbing to the summit. Lots of archaeological stuff on display too

Fine trekking/running routes and great views
Aug 2016 • Couples
Spent some hours trekking around Parco Archeologico Rocca di Manerba in August 2016 - and it was a good experience. There are some great views around the different routes, which are very clearly marked with different colours so it is easy to find your way around.

Can be recommended, but remember to wear decent shoes. Not all of the routes are completely up to date.
