About Trentino

Trentino might not have an instantaneously recognisable name, but this region is where you’ll find the Dolomites. Not Italy’s tallest mountain range, but arguably its most dramatic. Alpine, but with more red stone than you might expect, these mountains are a playground for climbers, hikers, skiers and anyone who enjoys a spectacular view. You might think all our Guru’s recommendations for the best places to stay in Trentino are up in the mountains or mountain valleys, but that’s not quite the case. At the southern end of Trentino you’ll find Lake Garda, which is where you’ll find some of the best places to stay in Trentino for those who prefer spectacular lake views to spectacular mountain views.

Beyond the views there are national parks protecting stunning areas of unspoiled wilderness and providing another landscape for those seeking adventure in the great outdoors. Then there are peaceful rural valleys, vineyards, orchards and pretty hamlets. Trentino is a fantastic place for foodies, this whole region is such a European melting pot and a lot of this cultural fusion comes out on the plate.

Trentino’s towns and cities offer the visitor quite a lot as well.

  • Trento has a beautiful collection of medieval and renaissance architecture and a noteworthy cathedral,
  • Rovereto also has a pretty medieval centre, but is better known for its production of cheese, chocolate, coffee, wine, silk and glass.
  • Then there’s the picturesque lakeside town of Riva del Garda,
  • beautiful Tenno, just north of Lake Garda,
  • and Arco with its hilltop castle.

If you're planning to come to the region in the busy summer months, just remember to book your pick of the best places to stay in Trentino well ahead. If you leave it till the last minute, you'll definitely be disappointed!
