Many rewarding destinations for curious people
CitiesWhether it’s a day trip to Trento for window shopping, a sightseeing tour through Bolzano old town or a day trip to Verona with an opera performance in the arena in the evening: the towns in Trentino and the surrounding area are rich in cultural highlights and invite you to discover and explore.
The Austro-Hungarian monarchy once secured its borders to Italy by a chain of historic barricades. Trentino’s fortresses, such as Forte Belvedere, Forte Colle delle Benne or Forte di Busa Verle south of Caldanazzo lake and many more, were built between the end of the 19th century and 1914. Most fortresses are open to the public. The tour can be combined very pleasantly with a wonderful walk through Trentino’s mountains.

Arte Sella is an international exhibition of contemporary art that has been around since 1986 and is displayed exclusively outdoors, in the fields and forests of the Sella valley (Borgo Valsugana municipality, Provence of Trento). The exhibits are made from stones, leaves, branches and tree trunks, artistic objects, materials or colours are only rarely used. Most works of art are left to decay naturally and are then incorporated back into nature’s cycle again.
