Trentino-Alto Adige is located in northern Italy in the Eastern Alps. It is an area of varied relief, the highest parts of which reach 3000 m above sea level. There are scenic Dolomites, numerous ski resorts, as well as cities with interesting, historic buildings.
Due to its history and culture, the region has considerable autonomy within Italy. It is also bilingual, and German is an equivalent language to Italian. From a historical point of view this is the southern part of Tyrol, which is already on the Austrian side.
The capital of the region is Trento in the mountain valley. It has preserved a beautiful old town with tenement houses, whose facades are decorated with historic polychromes, a cathedral in the basement where you can admire Romanesque relics and the castle.
Almost the entire region is covered with mountains. Here rise among others Dolomites with rocks formed by water and wind like powerful sculptures. Many walking routes and via ferratas, roads insulated with chains and clamps were led in them. You can also climb on some of the peaks. Further north extends the chain of the Eastern Alps with beautiful valleys and soaring peaks covered with eternal snow.
The Alps and Dolomites are popular places for skiing. Large ski resorts in the area include Val Gardena, Vall di Fiemme, Madonna di Campiglio, Plan de Corones and many more. Marmolada can be reached by cable car throughout the year to the highest peak of the Dolomites.
Lake Garda is also a great attraction of Trento. On its shores there are popular holiday resorts such as Riva del Garda or Sirmione, as well as the large Gardaland theme park and numerous hiking trails, via ferratas and climbing routes.
