Love (for art) is in the air!

Live a weekend of culture in Trentino, with all the senses ... including smell

Who said that art can only be appreciated with our eyes? Italy holds so much of the world’s cultural heritage that it seems impossible to appreciate it only through one sense.

In Trentino, the best experiences combine all five senses and even art can be enjoyed through the sights, sounds, scents and atmospheres we find ourselves in. In spring, our love for art and culture stems like a new leaf: it’s in the air as you walk past the beautiful frescoes in the historic centre of Trento; it’s in the smell of the ancient stones and the pine-cladded walls of Castel Thun; it’s captured in the contemporary atmospheres of the Mart museum in Rovereto.

This spring, take a tour around Trentino’s cities and discover art through all your senses.
