Last week I have hiked from Rifugio Gardeccia over Rifugio Vajolet further steep up to Rifugio Passo Santner and back= cca 13 kms. Harder part is from Rifugio Vajolet up to Rifugio Alberto.
Excellent views and experience.
Rifugio Gardeccia : accesible either by foot, bike or minibus (recommended).
Refreshment : in all mentioned huts, except the most distant one ( Rif. Passo Santner).
Take enough water to drink. Poles not necessary (at least for me).

I think all cathedrals are worth visiting but it is always disappointing when repairs force much of one to be unseen. Of course, this must happen. My greatest take away at first glance is the interior stairway (much without a handrail) that must reach to heaven. Of course you cannot actually climb it. I love its great window and the light it affords as it is not stained glass. Although it dominates the square baring its name, the front entrance is from a street with buildings and shops close by. This gives a feeling of authenticity to its age and what it might have looked like in the Middle Ages.

The MUSE is located south of the historic Palazzo delle Albere in the new city district Le Albere, which was planned by the architect Renzo Piano. It stretches over 6 floors with a length of 130 m each, the entire area is about 12,600 m². In the museum science and technology show the interaction of humans and the environment. The MUSE especially invites young, children and families to a wonderful journey into science and nature. The metaphor of the mountain is used in the exhibition to relate life on earth, the first Alpine dwellers, the history of the Dolomites and nature of the Alps. The MUSE also organises numerous events and temporary Exhibitions. A special experience is “Maxi Ooh!”, a room for children from 0 to 6 years. A place of sensory experiences with touching, smelling, looking, seeing, and hearing. Fun is guaranteed! Please note: dogs of all sizes are not permitted in the museum.

If you are coming from a big city, I'm sure, you saw a better museum. It is architectonic very interesting to see. English and German transalation are always on. In a rain day with children is a good treep.

Torre Aquila is part of the Buonconsiglio Castle in Trento, even though it is not always included in the visit. However, I strongly recommend to visit it, as it hosts one of the most interesting series of medieval paintings I've ever seen.
Each painting portrays the daily life of people in Trento in the Middle Ages in the 12 months of the year (from snowballs to harvest). It's a great way to get an insight of what life was at that time, very different from the picture we normally get from more famous medieval artists, which are more focused on religious or political subjects.
Even better if you have a chance to take a guided tour, it really helps to understand the beauty and richness of the paintings in Torre Aquila.
A must-do if you visit trento.

Neptune is pretty popular in Italy for Fountains and statues. It symbolizes the tie between the Alpine areas and the sea.
It was built to a design by the sculptor Francesco Antonio Giongo Lavarone between 1767 and 1769. It has been modified and repaired several times over the years. What you see now is a bronze copy made in 1945.

The Buonconsiglio Castle is the largest and most important monumental complex of the Trentino Alto Adige region. It was the residence of the prince-bishops of Trento from the 13th century to the end of the 18th century, and is composed of a series of buildings of different eras, enclosed by walls and positioned slightly higher than the city. Castelvecchio is the oldest nucleus, dominated by an imposing cylindrical tower; the Magno Palazzo is the 16th century expansion in the Italian Renaissance-style as commissioned by the Prince-Bishop and Cardinal Bernardo Cles (1485-1539); the Baroque-style Giunta Albertiana dates from the end of the 17th century. At the extreme south of the complex is the Torre Aquila, within which is conserved the famous Cycle of the Months, one of the most fascinating secular pictorial cycles of the late Middle Ages.
We spent a rainy 3 hours here and I'm glad we did. If you buy the ticket for the tour be sure and go at the appointed time, not when you happen to arrive at that point. This is a unique place and you should go. The castle is a good if not better than the art. Take your time and enjoy.

Located at Trento airport the entrance fee allows a discount for Pensioners. Well set out and packed with very interesting exhibits of unique historical value. Very old items have been well restored and also some items presented as they were found. Really worth a visit.

We enjoyed our stroll down this beautiful street after leaving Piazza del Duomo. There are several historical buildings, many with beautiful frescoes, and towers to see as well as many shops and restaurants. A great street for photos.

The excavations of the old Roman city underneath Piazzqa Cesare Battista are definately worth a visit. Although the museum is (very) small, it gives a good impression of the Roman Trento
Visit the Buonconsiglio Castle first, since the ticket will be cheaper with the reduction voucher you get there (€ 1 instead of € 2).
