Trentino Alto Adige, Italy
Provinces: Trento, Bolzano
This is a mainly mountainous region, rich in rivers and lakes and with chains of mountains divided in two by the valley of the river Adige. To the west one finds the glaciers of the group Adamello-Presanella-Care Alto and the group of Brenta. To the east the groups of Lagorai, Latemar, the Dolomites of Fassa, and the Pale di S. Martino. There are many alpine valleys: the Valsugana, the Vallarsa, the Val di Non, the Val di Sole, the Val di Cembra, Fiemme and Fassa. The main lakes are those of Garda, Caldonazzo, Tovel and Ledro. This region also hosts three natural parks: Adamello-Brenta, Paneveggio-Pale of S. Martino and Stelvio.
The principal town of Trentino is this old Roman town, worth visiting for its wealth of art works, gathered by the dynasty of princes who ruled the area between the 10th and 18th centuries. The town’s museums include the Castello di Buonconsiglio, the Museo Provinciale d’Arte and the Museo Diocesano Trentino.
Other interesting sights are the Church of S.Lorenzo, and the facades of Casa Balduina, Casa Cazuffi Rella, and Palazzo Geremia.
The principal town of Alto Adige; in the old town visit the Gothic cathedral, the Dominicans church, Via dei Portici with its arcades and Piazza delle Erbe. Further north, about 20km away is Lake Carezza, a beautiful limpid pool of bright green water reflecting the trees and mountains around it.
Merano: One of the most famous mountain resorts and the
second-largest town in this region, 28km north of Bolzano. Popular
for its spas, thermal waters and moderate climate (the temperature
tends to remain above freezing all winter, despite its close
proximity to a range of snow-laden ski slopes), it is also visually
rewarding, with extensive landscaped gardens and a charming mixture
of architectural styles from Gothic to Art Nouveau.
