Come along, the sun is setting!

5 destinations for 5 enchanting sunsets

“It is almost impossible to watch a sunset and not dream.” (Bern Williams)

There’s nothing quite as romantic as sitting by a lake, on mountain top or in a chalet in the woods, in the company of the person you love, and watching the sun slowly sink to the horizon, making way for the night and the stars.

In autumn, furthermore, nightfall seems to have an extra quality, as the colours of sunset are emphasised by the hues of red, yellow and orange of the season’s foliage, another natural showpiece to be experienced first-hand.

The places we suggest in this article are ideal for making the most of this spectacle, an experience that you will treasure in your heart and mind for years to come.

#1

The emotion of the “Enrosadira”

It’s at sundown, standing before the Pale di San Martino Dolomites, when the pink hues of the “enrosadira” colour their rocky peaks, that the Baita Segantini lodge shows its romantic side, becoming one of the most evocative places in Trentino. The perfect spot for a sunset with the person you love, sitting together on a wooden bench, gazing at the mountains.

#2

Take a dip in a painting

A carefree stroll along the lakeshore, hand in hand with the person you love, to admire the last rays of sunlight across Lake Caldonazzo, a half hour from Trento. The evening light seems to skip and dance across the water’s surface, creating a kaleidoscope of colours and reflections. It all calls to mind a painting, a vast masterpiece, for your eyes only.

#3

The charm of Lake Garda from above

In the heart of the Val di Gresta, surrounded by vast meadows, you’ll find the Maso Naranch farmhouse, a romantic terrace overlooking Lake Garda. Once you arrive, find a bench and stop to contemplate your surroundings. At dusk you’ll see the sun slowly dip behind the mountains, its last rays stretching across the lake’s surface in a final salute. Priceless.

#4

A balcony overlooking the Dolomites

A few kilometres from Madonna di Campiglio, the Malga Ritorto lodge provides a natural terrace from where you can soak up the view across the Val Rendena and the entire Brenta Dolomites. A truly sublime setting which becomes even more so at dusk, as the setting sun caresses the mountains with its warm glow.

#5

Pampering at QC Terme Dolomiti

If you love a quality wellness centre, QC Terme Dolomiti is a must-do on your list! It’s all in the details: a soft bathrobe, a glass of Trentodoc and a panoramic thermal outdoor pool overlooking a mesmerising sunset over the Catinaccio Group. There is no better way to end the day, is there?
