Enjoying the lakes and nature

Lake Garda, the largest lake in Italy, is a hotspot for sailing and windsurfing. But there is also Lake Tovel, which is more tranquil and known for its stunning turquoise waters. Additionally, 12 Trentino’s beaches have been awarded the “Blue Flag” for their cleanliness and facilities.

The location provides unique methods to relax, such as “forest bathing,” which involves immersing yourself in the ambiance of the forests. Among the health activities available are barefoot walks, Kneipp hydrotherapy paths in fresh mountain streams, and yoga sessions with amazing views of the Dolomites.


Cultural treasures: museums, castles, and villages

Trentino has a rich historical and cultural heritage. This year, the Castello del Buonconsiglio Museum commemorates its centenary with a shaman-themed exhibition produced by Muse, Mart, and Mets. The Mart Museum in Rovereto provides a glimpse into the fascist regime’s effect on the arts. Then, the “Castle Train” from Trento takes visitors on a panoramic tour to discover some of the region’s most spectacular castles in the Val di Sole and Val di Non.
