The Val di Sole   


The Val di Sole (Sun Valley) is nestled amongst the Brenta Dolomites and the Stelvio National Park. It extends over 40 km along the river Noce at an altitude of 600 to 1800 metres.
With Val di Peio and Val di Rabbi, it accounts for 13 municipalities and many small fractions.

 The valley boasts an interesting past which has gifted this area with a wealth of rustic buildings, strongholds, castles, palazzos and churches which at times preserve authentic "hidden gems". The art and craftsmanship in Val di Sole is booming and represent one of the most prolific industries, which combine the traditions and techniques of the past with the needs of a modern, constantly-evolving market. This is an ancient world which is kept alive in the ateliers often hidden along the narrow streets of the town.

The Sanctuary of San Romedio is one of the most peculiar hermitages in Europe and is open year round.


In 2019, Trento became a "green city" and was awarded first place in the Ecosistema urbano (urban eco-system ranking), the Legambiente Italian Environmental association report and first place by Ambiente Italia which measures environmental performance.

One of the most visited locations is Buonconsiglio Castle, the most important castle in Trentino, the seat of the prince-bishops and the symbol of the city, which today houses the Provincial Museum of Art. Also worth visiting is Trento Cathedral (the Duomo) dedicated to Saint Vigil and the Fountain of Neptune.
The Muse, the museum of science built by Renzo Piano, is one of the most visited museums in Italy and Europe. In Rovereto, the Mart (Museum of Contemporary and Modern Art) is a real journey across the last 150 years of the history of art, and it pays particular attention to Italy's past.

 From the end of November, the entire city is enveloped in the Christmas spirit thanks to the opening of the Christmas markets.  
This is a unique opportunity to discover the singularity of hand-crafted production, food and wine, and to be bowled over by Christmas concerts and mountain choirs. 



The Trentino region boasts 6 sites which have been deemed amongst the "Most beautiful hamlets of Italy".
Also on the UNESCO list of Cultural Patrimony are the pile-dwelling sites of Fiavé and Ledro.
The beaches in Trentino have been awarded 10 Blue Flags; a total of 7 lakes have been given this prestigious recognition.
In the cultural landscape of Trentino, there are about 300 castles: some have disappeared, some can be visited and others are still visible. Each one has its own unique history and mysteries and often they become the venue of theatrical representations, concerts, exhibitions, and historic revocations, plunging visitors into the magical atmosphere of the past.


The Flavours of Trentino

Trentino's wine and flavours route: nature, relaxation and good food.
Trentino offers a wide selection of products: apples, forest fruits, wines and grappas, honey and compotes, malga cheeses and cold cuts.

The art of cheese-making boasts a long and ancient tradition: soft cheeses, seasoned cheeses with delicate or pungent flavours, each one with unique and unmistakeable features. 

Different climates and terrains come together and contribute to the creation of exceptional Trentino wines, great labels which have been successful all over the world. From Val di Sole traversing Val di Non, you reach the most perfect area for viticulture in Trentino: the Rotaliana Plain and the hills to the West of Lavìs.  

Apples are the symbolic fruit of Trentino and they are cultivated all over the region. 
The "Mela Val di Non" was the first Italian apple (and, to date, the only one) to receive the PDO label.
