Open spaces, warm welcome and safe holidays this winter in Trentino
For a peaceful and stress-free stay
Wide-open spaces and the rhythms of nature have always made Trentino the ideal destination for those seeking balance and well-being in any season. Even during a snowy winter. As a matter of fact, 800 km of ski slopes, 229 ski lifts, 6,000 km of trails and over 1,000 trees per resident are waiting for you In Trentino!
These numbers show that there are many choices for less sporty skiers and tourists and that the chances of ending up in a crowd of people can be limited. That being said, even here in Trentino, where there is a lot of open space, crowds and queues can form.
That is why we are continuing to work hard to ensure everyone’s safety, even during the winter, to make your holiday in Trentino a time dedicated to nature, to having fun and to carefree relaxation. On the ski slopes and in the hotels, snow lodges, ski buses and the restaurants of the coolest ski resorts, you will feel safe because we have set detailed protocols in place.
We look forward to seeing you in the same way that we look forward to the first snowfall, confident in our ability to guarantee you not only the welcome we have always taken pride in extending, but also the chance to enjoy your holiday so you can recharge in nature and with the people you love.

In Trentino, the situation is being monitored every day through the constant efforts of a dedicated task force. Nevertheless, it is important to work together and follow these simple instructions to limit potential risks.
Currently, Trentino is considered a yellow zone (moderate risk), as determined in the latest Prime Ministerial Decree dated 4 November: the measures which apply throughout Italy have been further strengthened through a provincial ruling.
The measures in place are summarised as follows:
- Until 3 December, it is only possible to be away from home between 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. in cases of proven necessity. Throughout Italy, moving between regions is only permitted if they are also considered at the “moderate” risk level, except in cases of proven necessity.
- it is compulsory throughout Italy to wear a face mask both indoors and outdoors, and in the vicinity of people with whom you do not live (this also applies to car trips). Children under the age of 6 remain exempt from this obligation, although the obligation to wear a face mask on all public transportation, for the entire duration of the journey, applies from the age of 3 years and up.
- People with health conditions that prevent them from wearing a face mask and anyone performing physical activity alone while outside of built-up areas and respecting minimum social distancing of at least 2 metres from others are also exempt from the obligation to wear a mask.
- Public transport vehicles are running at 50% of their permitted capacity.
- Museums, theatres, cinemas and all cultural institutes are closed throughout Italy. Discos, gyms, wellness centres and swimming pools are also closed.
- In towns and cities, individual sporting activities are permitted in green areas and parks on the outskirts whilst respecting minimum social distancing of 2 metres.
- Additional containment measures have been applied to catering services (see the dedicated section below) to ensure greater safety.
- Access to shops is allowed for only one person per household (with the exception of those accompanying minors below 14 years of age or people who require assistance). Medium and large shopping centres will be closed on pre-festive days (the day before a national holiday), and grocery stores will be closed on Sundays.
According to the most recent government guidelines, Trentino falls into Italy’s moderate-risk level (yellow zone). Therefore, it is possible to enter and leave our province only to/from regions which also fall into the moderate risk level, except in cases of proven necessity.
- For any further questions, the freephone number 800 390 270 is active in Trentino from Monday to Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. non-stop, and on Saturday mornings from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

We’d like to put your mind at ease. We want to share with you how Trentino has managed the epidemic and what precautionary measures have been put in place to protect the health of guests and locals. In the wake of the COVID-19 healthcare crisis, a task force was set up to monitor the trend of coronavirus infection in Trentino. Hospitals have been reorganised to increase the number of beds in intensive care and a pre-triage system has been implemented with a dedicated area and immediate assistance for people displaying flu symptoms.
To deal with the emergency, a national toll-free COVID number has been set up, active 24 hours a day for each citizen and can be reached by dialling 1500. The single emergency number, 112, should be used for all other emergencies.
Another useful tool created to counter the spread of the epidemic is IMMUNI, the national contact tracing APP, which lets you know if you have been in contact with others who are infected. For more information and to download the app, go here.
What should you do if you think you have COVID-19 symptoms?
If you have a fever, cough or difficulty in breathing or you suspect you have had close contact with a person affected by COVID-19, do not go to A&E or the medical clinics located throughout the territory! Inform management or the owner of the property where you are staying in order to contact the tourist medical service in the area as soon as possible, which will take action with the provincial body for Healthcare Services to carry out the medical examination in safety.
