All Saints short break in Trentino
Planning for your autumn break? Here are a few suggestions for a trip into nature or to the city
You can choose between the peace and tranquillity of our woodlands or a carefree stroll through the city, popping into exhibitions and museums, enjoying an aperitif and the fine cuisine.
If you want to make the most of the All Saints bank holiday weekend, which this year is unusually long as it starts on Thursday 1st November, and soak in the autumn atmosphere before the winter sets in, you could even spend some time at a wellness centre or organise a long break with the entire family.
Here are some original ideas for a truly golden autumn break.
10 must-see attractions for art lovers
Gothic and renaissance art, futurism and contemporary art: a trip through Trentino will lead you through the most significant chapters of international and Italian art history, from the middle ages right up to the present day. It’s like finding yourself in a vast “city of the arts” which stretches over mountains, lakes, valleys and Alpine hamlets. A city to be conquered, one step at a time, on a hunt for hidden treasures.
Just for you… a moment of well-being
Not just one, but five ideas for those who wish to celebrate the autumn by treating themselves to a break in a wellness centre. We’ve selected a number of hotels, giving priority to those that offer activities in contact with nature, such as barefoot trails, peaceful walks through the perfumes and colours of the woods, bioenergetic therapies, yoga sessions…
The Lake Garda gourmet experience
From the 1st to the 3rd of November, the town of Rive del Garda will come alive thanks to the “Garda con Gusto” event. Indeed, the local extra-virgin olive oil, “carne salada”, the broccoli of Torbole and the plums of Dro will all take centre stage and make up the main ingredients in a range of award-winning international recipes. Then of course, there’s the “Eat Theatre”, special guests and the Social Food Experience.
Instaplace: the Hermitage of San Colombano
If you like taking pictures, then Rovereto can offer a range of interesting angles and views. From the cupola of the MART museum to the Venetian piazzas in the old city centre and the views across the Leno torrent. Buti f you’re willing to leave the city behind and take the road towards Trambileno, then make sure you get that unique shot of the Hermitage of San Colombano, almost indiscernible against the rock.
A tasty autumn in the Dolomites
Make sure you don’t miss one of the most characteristic festivals of the autumn in Comano, the “Sagra della Ciuiga”. Bet you’re wondering what we’re talking about. Well then, come and find out about this local cured sausage, made from pork and turnips and part of the “Slow Food” movement, and its culinary versatility in local dishes. Make it a date in San Lorenzo in Banale, gateway to the Brenta Dolomites, from 1-3 November.
