Are you visiting Trento for the first time?
Our suggestions to discover the city
The first thing that strikes you, when you visit Trento, is its ability to combine its Alpine soul with an all-Italian elegance, which is shown by the façades of the historical buildings of the centre, decorated with marvellous Renaissance frescoes.
When you arrive, the first place to visit is Piazza Duomo, the heart of the city. As soon as you are there, stop beneath the fountain of Neptune, and take a look around: on one side the mountains, with the small Sardagna waterfall, on the other towers and castellated palaces, which whisk you back to the times of the famous Council of Trent in the blink of an eye. This is the best way to introduce you, in one sweeping gaze, to the two souls of the city.
Finished? Good, now you are ready to discover the city!
Walking in the centre
The beauty of Trento is that all points of interest can be reached on foot in a short time: Castello del Buonconsiglio, Museo Diocesano, Muse, Piazza Fiera... Where would you like to start?
Visit Castello del Buonconsiglio
A perfectly preserved fortress, in the heart of the historical centre. At one time it was home to the prince bishops, the lords of the city, and today it houses museums and temporary exhibitions. A tour of the frescoes in Torre dell’Aquila is worth the price of the ticket all on its own!
Visit the Muse
An innovative design by starchitect Renzo Piano, a tropical waterfall indoors, and many exciting and innovative workshops, to tell young and old the story of science. This is the Muse, one of the most important museums of natural science in Europe!
Do you feel like a bit of adventure? All you need to do is take the bus from the terminal, and in a quarter of an hour you can reach the Orrido di Ponte Alto, an amazing canyon carved in the rock by the Fersina stream. P.S.: Remember to wear comfortable shoes.
Stop for an aperitif
After a day spent admiring all the beauty that Trento has to offer, it’s high time for a break in a bar to indulge in the ritual of the aperitif. The undisputed hero of the hour is Trentodoc, the metodo classico sparkling wine that’s famous worldwide. Cheers!
