Arco is a comune in Trentino in northeast Italy.
Arco Castle is a ruined castle located on a prominent spur high above Arco and the Sarca Valley. The town is faced on one side by sheer limestone cliffs jutting up like a wall protecting it and its ancient hilltop castle.
Tourism is a major part of the local economy. Popular tourist activities include windsurfing on nearby Lake Garda, and rock climbing on the walls near the city.
