Food Scene
The best restaurant in town. A stone's throw from the Duomo (where the Counterreformation started). Very pretty wood-pannelled interior with traditional stove, intimate inside, pleasant open-air eating from Spring to Autumn. A real gem! Creative top-quality local cuisine, professional service with a personal touch, excellent choice of wines, many by the glass. The synergy between dishes and wines - chef and sommelier - constitutes an added value. In twenty years of frequent visits I have never been disappointed.

Centrally located. Fine food, good value for money. Service nice and personal.
Il Cappello

Two Michelin stars, very good cuisine, “elegant.” Owned by the Ferrari spumante empire (the winery is worth a visit; the sight of 15 million bottles of spumante is impressive). Just south of Trento. I recommend not to drink too much AND drive back: narrow winding road in the foothills. Consider taking a cab.

Spectacular location on a peninsula in the small lake of the same name. Half an hour by car on the beautiful road to Riva on Lake Garda. Very good cuisine, also a menu with fish from Lake Garda, good choice of mostly local wines. Excellent value for money. Scene of the annual exhibition of producers of Vin Santo, made from the local Nosiola grape.

A local classic. They serve their home-brewed beer with pizza or local dishes (high venison and polenta content). Big, rustic, lively. Popular also with students.

One of the many local wineries that has reached out to foreign markets. Excellent wines that may be tasted and purchased. The old cellar merits a visit.

The biggest and technologically most advanced Poli supermarket in town, IperPoli, in the shopping complex that includes Media World, open every day. Includes a sushi counter with Japanese chefs. Attracts shoppers from all economic and ethnic backgrounds - which is an excellent recommendation.

Where the Counterreformation started. Trento's historic city center is dominated to this very day by the palazzi the participating cardinals had constructed by their (mostly Roman) architects. They considered staying in an inn below their status (and perhaps - considering their numerous staff - beyond their means...). For this reason Via Belenzani is one of the most beautiful streets of Italy.

Those fortunate enough to own a pilot's license - and perhaps their private airplane - can land here. Airplanes, helicopters and gliders for rent. Flying lessons. For others interested in flying well worth a visit (kids!) on weekends with good weather for plane-watching and when the weather is not so nice to visit the small but very well-equipped Caproni Aeronautics Museum, named after the local engineer, aviation pioneer and airplane builder who made significant contributions in the first decades of aviation.

Parks & Nature
We are located on the ancient Via Claudia Augusta, the road the Emperor Claudius had constructed to link the Roman Empire to Southern Germany. For hiking enthusiasts there is a host of trails. Consult, for instance, http://www.mapmyhike.com/it/trento-trentino-alto-adige/

Local animals (also reintroduced) may be seen in what comes close to their natural environment. Great to take your kids to.
