The «Il Trenino dei Castelli» will depart from Trento and take you on a magical discovery through the historical castles, the local treasures of art and culture, and allow you to indulge in some delicious local food and fine Trentino wines.
Everybody on board! The «Il Trenino dei Castelli» tour begins at the Trento railway station and takes you on a journey along Val di Non and Val di Sole.
