5 travel tips for a spring time picnic in Trentino

What to eat and where to go to enjoy a beautiful sunny day among the forests, lakes and meadows that look towards the mountains

A relaxing mood, a blanket to spread out on the grass and something good to eat. These are the ingredients for a perfect spring time picnic in Trentino. All you need to do is organise the basket - strictly filled with the best local products. Here we suggest where to buy them and where to taste them.

In a perfect Trentino picnic basket, you cannot miss locally made cold meats like Speck or Luganega Trentina, or local cheeses like Casolet, Vezzena or the Primiero cheeses.

Even the bread makes a difference. Choose craft bakers - locally there are some who even make their products entirely 0 Km. And, while you’re visiting a bakery, why not complete your shopping with a few sweets to take to the mountains, like strudel.

For a lighter version of dessert, on the other hand, you can’t do better than bring with you some fresh fruit, like the golden apples of Val di Non, or wild berries like strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackcurrants. It is also worth trying the sweetness of dried fruit: the apples and plums of Dro are delicious.

And where should you spread your blanket? Here are the top 5 places for a wonderful spring time picnic!
