Trento

This description page of Trento, in the Italian region of Trentino Alto Adige, will guide you in planning your trip to Italy and help you find useful travel information about this Italian city.

 

Trento is a city of art, history, and represents a crossroads for the contrasting cultures of Italy and northern Europe. Trento was the Romans' strategic gateway to the north. For centuries to follow, the region was the base for fortresses such as Castello del Buonconsiglio.

 

Originally a Roman city, Trento became famous for the Council (1545 -1563) which gave rise to the counter-Reformation. In an effort to reduce the rapid progress of Martin Luther's Reformation, from 1545 to 1563, the Council of Trento was held by the Catholic Church. The Bishop Princes rule lasted until 1801.

Trento is an ideal place for visiting museums and expositions, castles and sanctuaries, wine cellars and typical restaurants, archaeological, historical, and nature journeys.

 

Places to visit include the Castello del Buonconsiglio, the Duomo and its splendid square, the houses decorated with frescoes, the churches of the Council, the museums and exhibitions which today make Trento a city of art, culture, and traditions beyond those of the Alps.
