Rovereto

Among museums, castles and markets: Rovereto is the ideal weekend destination

  • Breakfast at Caffè Bontadi
  • Discover the dinosaur footprints at Castel Dante
  • Taste Marzemino wine

Where to find it

A city of almost 40,000 inhabitants, Rovereto is located 25 kilometres south of Trento, and is perfect for those who wish to combine a cultural holiday with a bit of sport and relaxation on the Brentonico Plateau.
 

What to do

Once you arrive in Rovereto, we strongly suggest you plan to visit the Castello di Rovereto, with its view over the entire valley: also called Castel Veneto, it is of Medieval origin and is one of the best examples of late-Medieval Alpine fortification. Inside it, you will find the Museo della guerra [war museum] - one of the most important museums on the first world war.

Also don’t miss Palazzo Fedrigotti Alberti, Palazzo dell’Annona (home of the Civic Library), Museo Depero and Teatro Zandonai. It is also worth especially mentioning the MART, the museum of modern and contemporary art of Trento and Rovereto, open since 2002 and one of the most important in Europe: inside you will find a permanent collection of 20,000 works, in addition to travelling exhibitions of sculpture and paintings. Finally, it is worth visiting the Campana dei Caduti [bell of the fallen], which is rung 100 times every evening in memory of those who have fallen in all wars.

If you visit Rovereto in winter, don’t miss the Christmas Markets, known as Natale dei Popoli: from Piazza Battisti, walk along Via Roma among the huts and spicy aromas, stopping to discover the foreign countries that are selling their own typical products, in addition to more traditional stands. Among the other experiences worth trying, we suggest an excellent breakfast at Caffè Bontadi, and tasting at least one glass of Marzemino wine, typical of this area, in one of the many local restaurants.

If you wish to explore the surrounding areas as well, for a bit of sport, in winter skiing enthusiasts can reach the skiing stations of Brentonico Polsa - San Valentino, and Folgaria. In summer, on the other hand, Rovereto is a paradise for cyclists: you will find free bicycles available and a network of city bike lanes, which then continue and lead all the way to Trento and Bolzano.
 

How to get there

Rovereto, like Trento, is easy to reach by car on motorway A22, and by train on the railway: once you arrive you can walk around the centre or use the local buses.
