About the City of Trento

Trento is very nice city located in the Adige river Valley, in the heart of the great itineraries between the Lake Garda and the Dolomites, between Venice-Verona and Bolzano-Innsbruck. It’s dominated by the nearby Bondone (2.170 m.) and Paganella Mounts(2.125 m.).

Originally a Roman city, Trento became famous for the Council (1545 -1563) which gave rise to the counter - Reformation.
Trento’s rich artistic and historical heritage is to be found in its monuments, which embody the centuries of history written under the dual influences of northern and Italian cultures.

The city offers a good deal of cultural and entertainment opportunities. The most obvious choice in winter is to reach some of its famous skiing stations in the neighborhood (by 30 minutes of driving you reach very nice places). Moreover, you may wish to visit the Castello del Buonconsiglio (the castle which was home to the prince bishops of Trento for many centuries), the Duomo (cathedral) and its splendid square, the houses decorated with frescoes, the churches of the Council, the museums etc.
