Trentino Alto Adige is situated in the very north of Italy bordering Austria and Switzerland and is the best known for the beauty of its peaks. Its territory stretches from the Adamello-Brenta range and the peaks of Ortles and Cevedale to the most striking mountains in Europe: the Dolomites of the Fassa Valley, Brenta, Gardena Valley, Fiemme Valley and Pale di San Martino. This setting encloses an extraordinary variety of landscapes: magnificent snow-capped mountain tops, woods, wide valleys, streams, lakes, enchanting light play between the spires of the Dolomites, typical villages with soaring bell towers, and the myriad shades of truly unspoilt nature. Hundreds of kilometres of ski slopes make this region a cutting-edge tourist destination - Madonna di Campiglio, Canazei, Moena, San Martino di Castrozza are the best known resorts, popular in both winter and summer for holidays surrounded by nature, sport and fun. The landscape of Lake Garda is particularly picturesque; the lake narrows in Trentino, and looks like a fiord between the high mountains. Land of confluence and meeting point between Latin and Nordic worlds, Trentino Alto Adige is the guardian of a remarkable cultural heritage, made up of prehistoric evidence, charming castles, sanctuaries and towns of great historical and artistic significance. There are a number of spa towns offering treatments and therapies, of which Merano, Lèvico Terme, Peio, Rabbi and Comano Terme are the best known. The provinces of the region are Bolzano and Trento.
