Trento

The unique charm of a Renaissance Alpine city, where history is art  

Trento is a city rooted in art and history, where the Italian and Mitteleuropean cultures meet. Unique amongst the Alpine cities, the City of the Council (1545 - 1563) still keeps its precious monuments as tokens of its rich artistic and historic heritage. Built in the elegant Renaissance style, they have been enhanced by recent refurbishing works.
Special mention goes to the Castello del Buonconsiglio (for several centuries residence of the Prince Bishops of Trento), the Duomo, its splendid piazza and fountain dedicated to Neptune, the frescoed houses and Council Churches as well as the museums and exhibitions which make Trento a true landmark of Alpine arts, culture and traditions.
The "imperial" tour starts at Castello del Buonconsiglio and takes visitors across the historical city-centre up to the piazza Duomo, along Via San Marco, via Manci and via Belenzani, running past some of the most beautiful palaces of the city and their surrounding network of roads, alleyways and squares - where other historical buildings can be discovered, such as Via Suffragio's characteristic arcades and the city's ancient towers and battlements.
Trento offers visitors its richly historical and artistic heritage all year around. Visitors can admire its beauties while strolling around the city-centre's alleys, enjoying shopping or visiting the city's museums (Museo del Castello del Buonconsiglio, the MUSE Museo delle Scienze and the Museo Caproni themed around aviation).
Trento was awarded the title of Alpine City year 2004, and is home to one of the most prestigious Universities in Italy. It is also a playing host to several all-important cultural events planned throughout the year, such as the Economics Festival, which draws experts and researchers from all over the world.
In December, don't miss the Christmas Market, which is one of the best in Italy!
