The Via Ferrata dell'Amicizia (Friendship Path) high above the roofs of the old town of Riva on Lake Garda is a via ferrata with extremely long ladders and breathtaking views.

The Friendship Path (Via dell'Amicizia) is one of the most famous via ferratas on Lake Garda. Its two long ladders have made it a popular destination for climbing enthusiasts. The outlook and especially deep views of the alleys of the old town of Riva del Garda are fantastic. Especially in midsummer, many hikers find it pleasant that the climbing system is in the shade for most of the day. The orientation of the path is to the east. Orientation in ascent and descent succeeds without any problems. Only the many switchbacks in the descent seem to have no end. As a reward, you can sit down in one of the many cafés in Riva and enjoy the typical flair on the north shore of Lake Garda.
