Trentino is an autonomous province of Italy, in the country’s far north with its capital, the city of Trento. The province covers an area of more than 6,000 km2 (2,300 sq mi), with a total population of about 540,000. Trentino is renowned for its mountains, such as the Dolomites, which are part of the Italian Alps.
The province straddles the high alps where Italy, Austria and Switzerland meet together and their cultures blur. As such, it is a major drawcard for vacationers, who are lured by the winter skiing and summer hiking – a far cry from its violent medieval and World War 1 histories.
The more popular Trentino travel destinations include Lake Garda, Trento, Riva del Garda, the Madonna di Campiglio and the Pejo 3000 Ski Slopes.
