Architecture and art, history and nature, are just some of the features that make Trento a wonderful travel destination.
Provincial capital, home to universities and research institutes, rich of cultural initiatives and exhibition, Trento is a “cultural tourist destination on the border”, thanks to its geographical position it represents an important link between the Italian and the Middle-European culture, a link between tradition and innovation.
A city to visit during summer to enjoy its beautiful nature and colours and also during winter to enjoy the magical atmosphere of the Christmas market.
In the heart of the city, beside the ancient medieval walls, there are our 3 holiday apartments. Modern and welcoming, completely renovated in May 2019, the structure is located within a single property with a private entrance. Located in a central but quiet street, just 100 meters from the Cathedral of Trento.
