What to do in Trentino Alto Adige in 3 Days

Trentino Alto Adige has always fascinated thousands of tourists thanks to its mountain landscapes and unspoiled nature. In a unique meeting of nature, sport and gastronomic tradition, this magnificent region is full of places to discover even if you have little time available. For example, what to do in Trentino in 3 days ? A practical and intelligent solution can be to participate in the numerous excursions and activities offered by myTour, which allow you to enjoy all the best of the place without losing the most important attractions.

Day 1: the villages on Lake Garda

Riva del Garda, Tenno and Torbole

A self-respecting visit to Trentino cannot fail to start with some of the main towns on Lake Garda. Riva del Garda offers visitors various religious and civil architectures of interest, such as the Church of the Inviolata, the Apponale Tower and the Rocca, but also historical attractions such as the archaeological site of Mount San Martino. Tenno , located a few kilometers away from Riva del Garda, is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. Visitors are particularly attracted to the Castle overlooking Lake Garda, Lake Tenno which is suitable for swimming and the Varone Waterfalls. Another town that you cannot miss is Torbole, particularly appreciated for its scenic beauty, such as the glacial wells called Marmitte dei Giganti and the nature trail of the Busatte Tempesta Path.

Day 2: a walk in nature

The Sanctuary of San Romedio

An ancient pilgrimage destination, the Sanctuary of San Romedio is located in the heart of the Val di Non and is considered one of the most beautiful religious buildings in Europe. The complex is a set of churches and chapels, the oldest of which dates back to the 11th century, and is perched on a limestone cliff over 70 meters high. To reach the sanctuary it is necessary to face a trekking path that is articulated along a staircase of over 130 steps . This staircase, which is rather steep but at the same time offers a spectacular view of the surrounding landscape, directly connects the town of Sanzeno to the sanctuary dedicated to the figure of the hermit Romedio di Thaur.

If you decide to visit the sanctuary in the winter period, on January 15th there are celebrations in honor of San Romedio during which a mass is held and it is possible to taste the typical pilgrim’s dish. Another interesting feature of the sanctuary is the presence, at the foot of the connecting staircase, of a wildlife area.

Day 3: in close contact with nature

The private tour The Great Dolomites Road

myTour offers a private tour that winds along the roads of the Dolomites , starting from Bolzano to get to Ortisei; the tour includes several stops and the opportunity to enjoy breathtaking views and discover some historic buildings. Among these stops it is worth mentioning the Ega Valley surrounded by the Latemar mountains with Lake Carezza and the historic Grand Hotel Carezza, where illustrious personalities such as Winston Churchill and Agatha Christie have stayed.
