Peak experience: Trentino and the Dolomites of north Italy

In this video, we travel to Italy’s region of Trentino-Alto Adige, or simply ‘Trentino’, home to the spectacular Dolomite mountains, and awash in alpine beauty.

Composed of the semi-autonomous provinces of Trento and Bolzano, Italy’s northernmost region is a major draw for holiday-makers who mostly come for winter skiing, summer hiking and basking in the perennially tranquil vistas.

Thanks to the borders with Austria to the north and Switzerland to the northwest, many of the region’s locals also speak German or the ancient Ladin language, in addition to Italian, trains run with Swiss precision, and expertly-maintained recreation paths wind through vine- and orchard-covered hillsides.

As for Trentino’s chief cities – Trento, Bolzano and Merano – they are cultured and dynamic, while accommodation, ranging from modest mountain huts to five-star spas, is reliably welcoming and well-run.

Suggested Trentino itinerary activities include:

  • Skiing the iconic Sella Ronda route
  • Hiking the Alpe di Siusi plateau
  • Exploring the Brenta Dolomites
  • Thermal bathing at the historic Terme Merano
  • Winetasting at the Sudtiroler Weinstrasse vineyards
  • Visiting Museo Archeologico dell’Alto Adige
  • Viewing MART’s modern and contemporary art collections
  • Enjoying the resorts of Val Pusteria
