There are lots of things to do in Trentino, both in summer and in winter. The natural surroundings, but also the towns and villages dotted around the region, offer lots of interesting and unique entertainment options...

Let this beautiful region surprise and enchant you!

Bolzano, city of art, culture and history

Bolzano, capital city of the Alto Adige region, was once a city of merchants and mercenaries and has a rich history. Today it is a popular tourist destination, thanks to its cultural and artistic heritage. Visitors are attracted by its many castles and museums, in particular the Archaeological Museum, which hosts the remains of Ötzi the iceman, and the modern Museion. Anyone passionate about history can stop at Castel Roncolo, renowned for the largest cycle of medieval profane frescos in the world. Bolzano hosts a range of events in every season, such as the flower festival in spring, in Piazza Walther, the Jazz Festival, the Autum trade fair and the famous Christmas Markets.

Merano, the most renowned spa town in Alto Adige

After Bolzano, Merano, is the second largest town in Alto Adige and has a long tradition as a spa town. Thanks to its position, located within a basin and surrounded by mountains, it enjoys a mild climate, where palm trees, olives and cypresses find a favourable environment. The beautiful Alpine landscape endows the town with a unique charm. Merano became famous for its spa in the 19th century. Scientists and doctors recommended the town for its pleasant temperatures and clean air, beneficial especially to patients with respiratory problems. The symbol of the town is the Kurhaus, a beautiful and important Art Deco building, on the Lungopassirio promenade, in the town centre. Merano has lots of interesting places to visit, including castles and museums. The Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle are Merano's most popular attraction. A botanical garden nestled into a natural amphitheatre.

The Wine Road

A trip along the Strada del Vino (Wine Road) is certainly an interesting experience. The road winds around the gentle hills and vineyards and goes through a number of historic villages, including Terlano and Caldaro, with its amazing lake. Of course, stopping at the many cellars along the way, to try the local wines, is a must.

Lake Garda

The largest and most beautiful lake in Italy, a destination very popular and appreciated by artists and writers. The Gardesana road runs all around its perimeter, for a total of 150 km. Along the way, you will find places of rare beauty and enchanting small towns. Sirmione is probably the most unique, as it is located on a very thin peninsula that stretches in the lower part of the Lake.

Spormaggiore Wildlife Park

Spormaggiore Wildlife Park is located on the Paganella Plateau in Trentino, a vast protected area immersed in nature. At the Wildlife Park, visitors have the unique opportunity to see brown bears – the largest mammal to inhabit the Alps – from close up. Recently, the Park has also acquired a number of grey wolves (Canis Lupus), the largest autochthonous carnivorous animals of the Alps, and a few lynxes. An interesting experience for both adults and children, which should include a visit to the modern and fully-equipped multi-media centre.

Rio Sass and Novella Canyons

A natural trail, 1,200 metres long, which cuts in half Fondo, the main town in the High Val di Non: The visit inside the canyon lasts two hours and thanks to its 100-metre drop, creates a unique and exciting experience in spectacular natural surroundings, which change gradually as you move deeper inside the canyon, due to the intensity of the light and the variety of plants that cover parts of the rock. Nature takes centre stage and provides a unique spectacle of biodiversity.

Cellars and Muse in Trento

The city of Prince-Bishops with a significant Roman heritage. Trento is one of the most interesting cities in Italy and, therefore, well worth visiting. Its historic centre has been completely restored and offers the opportunity to admire the city's main monuments and experience proper Middle-Europe culture. A visit to the MUSEUM OF SCIENCE, designed by architect Renzo Piano, is a must. After quenching your thirst for culture, you can visit the City of Wine, at the Rotary Cellar of Mezzocorona, the DOC wine region, or the cellar of Francesco MOSER, the former professional road bicycle champion, where you can taste the wine produced in his vineyard and visit the bicycle MUSEUM, where you will learn interesting facts about the history of the sport.

Passo del Tonale

You can comfortably reach the mountain pass that marks the border between Trentino and Lombardy with the cable car at Presena Glacier and visit a multi-media gallery (Sounds and Voices of the Great War), dedicated to the heroic soldiers who fought there, during the First World War. On your way back, it's worth stopping at what was the last Austro-Hungaric outpost, Fort Strino – also very well set up and organised. (FREE ADMISSION)

“Vacanza”

Cara Antonella, avevo detto che non avrei fatto recensioni, ma dopo la seconda meravigliosa esperienza, non posso esimermi. Ovviamente confermo e sottoscrivo tutte le cose positive dette in altre recensioni. Ma non tocco personale lo voglio dare. In nessun altro hotel, mi era capitato, al rientro dopo una giornata di sci, di parlare del più e del meno con il "Boss" dell' hotel, davanti una buona birra e questo la dice tutta su come ci si sente a l' Holiday. Un' abbraccio a tutti.

“Settimana bianca”

Anche quest'anno abbiamo trascorso una fantastica settimana in questo hotel dove l'ospite è coccolato dal primo momento dell'arrivo. È un hotel molto accogliente con camere spaziose e dorate di ogni comfort. ..specialmente le suite sono veramente belle. ..ogni angolo è molto curato da Maria e Antonella che curano personalmente anche la scelta del menù preparato dallo chef Cristian. E poi dopo una bella sciata in questo comprensorio dove le piste sono preparate sempre in modo impeccabile, cosa c'è di meglio di rilassarsi nello spazio benessere ?
