About Trento:

Trento is situated 190 metres altitude on the flat ground of the Adige river Valley, in the heart of the great itineraries between the lake Garda and the Dolomites, between Venice-Verona and Bolzano-Innsbruck. It is dominated by the nearby Bondone (2.170 m.) and Paganella Mounts(2.125 m.). It was a roman town of some importance (Tridentum) and after Goth, Lombard and Carolingian rule it passed in year 1027 from Emperor Conrad the Salic to the Bishop Princes. Though established as a satellite state of the Germanic Empire, it always had a certain independence. The "Council of Trento" was held here from the year 1545 to year 1563 by the Catholic Church in an attempt to curb the rapid progress of Martin Luther’s Reformation. The Bishop Princes rule lasted until year 1801. Trento is the ideal town for few days among museums and expositions, castles and sanctuaries, wine cellars and typical restaurants, archaeological, historical and naturalistic journey. Trento is also the ideal starting point for day trips to famous towns and cities or simply out into the countryside.
