Welcome to our selection of holiday homes to rent in Trento, Italy.
The province of Trento and the capital city that shares its name is located in the far north of Italy, in the heart of the Dolomite mountains, themselves part of the Southern Alps. Many of the more remote towns and villages become very busy in the winter months when the region is popular with skiers, while the same slopes are packed with hikers and climbers when the weather is warmer. The combination of stunning scenery with a pleasant and cosmopolitan main town make Trento an ideal, if unfashionable, tourist destination, although Lake Garda in the south of the province has been a popular attraction with visitors from all over Europe for many years.
Lake Garda is one of the most visited of the Italian Alpine lakes, especially popular in the summer months when you can try your hand at a variety of water sports, take one of the hiking or cycling trails around the shore or just relax on one of the man-made beaches enjoying a swim surrounded by spectacular scenery. The Dolomites are another of Trento's main attractions, and whether you visit in summer or winter there will be plenty to enjoy and to photograph! The same slopes that are popular with skiers in the winter are also popular with hikers and even climbers in the summer months, while the mountains are also home to several thermal springs, which have lead to the creation of spa resorts; the ideal way to relax after a long day on your feet, either skiing or walking.
Surrounded by such outstanding natural beauty, it is easy to overlook the pleasant and picturesque city of Trento, but this small capital has much to offer tourists who spend some time there. The main cathedral, or Duomo, was built in the 12th century on the site of an earlier Roman temple, the remains of which can still be seen in the crypt, while the Piazza Duomo is a beautiful square of buildings with painted frescoes on their exterior walls. The Piazza is also home to the medieval Torre Civica and the spectacular 18th century Fontana di Nettuno.
More Roman ruins can be seen at various points throughout the city below street level, but Trento is also famous for its more modern architecture, particularly the town's railway station which was designed in the 1930s by Angelo Mazzioni. Visitors can enjoy some peace and quiet by strolling through the Alpine Botanical Garden or take a break from the cold in winter by visiting the Trento Museum of Nature in the town or the aeronautical museum, which can be found at the city's small airport.
