Trento is a major educational, scientific, financial and political centre in Trentino Alto-Adige and Northern Italy
in general. The city contains a picturesque Medieval and Renaissance historic centre, with ancient buildings
such as Trento Cathedral and the Castello del Buonconsiglio.
Modern-day Trento is a cosmopolitan city, with beautiful accommodations, villa rentals, vacation rentals, condo rentals and apartment rentals set in the Italian country side.
Trento offers interesting monuments.
Its architecture has a unique feel, with both Italian Renaissance and Germanic influences. The city center is small, and most Late-Medieval and Renaissance buildings have been restored to their original pastel colours and wooden balconies. Part of the medieval city walls is still visible in Piazza Fiera, along with a circular tower. Once, these walls encircled the whole town and were connected to the Castello del Buonconsiglio. Although small, the town offers intimate accommodation, villa rental, vacation rental, condo rental and apartment rental option in historic buildings.
The wine from the area is quite famous
as about 10 percent of the country's grape production comes from the area. The three main grapes are the red Marzemino and Teroldego Rotoliano and the white Nosiola.
Polenta is the basis of much of the area's cuisine.
There are large German influences so you will find many spices and food combinations that are not found in the rest of Italy. Smoked meats are very typical as the weather is quite cool. The tastiest local dish is “speck” which is boneless pork meat that is cooked with herbs, juniper, garlic, pepper and laurel, using a secret family recipe that has been passed down through the generations. Join an Italian cooking class and try your hands at making these dishes in your villa rental, vacation rental, accommodation or apartment rental.
The town centre is more or less a pedestrian area
, and walking around the historic centre you can see a number of outdoor frescos on historic buildings. In the past the river Adige flowed right outside the centre where now Torre Verde is. Nowadays it is one of the most expensive towns in Italy, with the wealth from farming, wine, and high-tech industries.
Fortunately lodging and villas to rent range from budget to luxurious and there are various accommodations, apartment rentals, villa rentals and vacation rentals.
