Great Scott, in Trentino time-travelling is possible!
A short and fascinating time-travelling journey spanning across 200 million years
With a bit of imagination you can transform your car in the iconic DeLorean and travel back in time: from the prehistoric dinosaurs to the stilt houses of the Bronze Age, from the ancient Romans to the Great War, passing through the world’s most famous Council.
Start your journey in Rovereto and be amazed by the great history of our world retracing the dinosaurs’ footprints left 200 million years ago. Continue to explore the stilt houses in Fiavè, just one hour drive away, and discover the everyday life in the Bronze Age. Along the way, stop at Spiaggia degli Olivi for a lunch break on one of the most beautiful lake-front terraces.
After treating your taste buds, restart your engine and head for Trento where you can dig into Roman history underneath the city grounds. Resurface to the Middle Ages with a visit to the places at the heart of the Council that saw history in the making.
You don’t need to turn into a mad scientist sporting an eccentric hairdo or build a flux capacitor to fly back to the beginning of 1900 and uncover the events of the Great War while admiring the complex engineering behind the war airplanes, now on display at Museo Caproni, or the architectural masterpiece of Forte Pozzacchio.
Complete the time-travel loop going back to Rovereto with one last stop at MART - Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art - a tribute to the most recent human triumphs in the creative arts. End your journey raising a glass of bubbly Trentodoc to the marvels of this world at Caffè Enigma in the beautiful surroundings of Piazza Loreto.
For now, your adventure is over but don’t forget to come back to the future, or the present should we say, for more discoveries and amazing stories!
