Our whistle-stop tour around northern Italy ends in Trento, my favourite out of the three. Less than an hour from Verona (three from Venice) via train, Trento offers an idyllic lifestyle in stunning surroundings; medieval city walls, spectacular mountain views, the serene Adige river, hardly any tourists in sight and with temperatures that can reach 22 degrees during October, who’s complaining?!
We also got on a cable car ride located near the train station which took us to the small, almost hidden town of Sardagna. Here, you can catch a breathtaking view of Trento and admire the Dolomites in a much closer distance. It’s a wonder how this town and its residents manage their day-to-day living but then again, with its majestic views and tranquil location, I guess one could cope.
