Trentino South Tyrol Area Guide
Trentino-South Tyrol, also known as Trentino-Alto Adige, is an autonomous region situated in the very north of Italy, bordering Austria and Switzerland. It is best known for the beauty of its mountain peaks and plunging valleys, making up the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site, the essence of the region. Some of Italy’s best winter sports facilities can be found here, with the region regularly hosting international ski competitions. Just as beautiful in the summer as the winter, with its perfectly kempt, velvet-green slopes, the region is hugely popular as a holiday destination for all tastes.
A land of confluence between the Latin and Nordic worlds, Trentino is the guardian of a remarkable cultural heritage, beginning in prehistory, with imposing medieval castles, sanctuaries and many picturesque towns with great historical and artistic significance. Part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until its annexation by Italy in 1919, the region is dual-language, with German overtaking Italian in a majority of the region’s municipalities. Bolzano, the “Gateway to the Dolomites” is a symbol of the fusion of Latin and Germanic cultures, as can be seen in the Gothic cathedral, among other architectural and culinary assets.
