Trento, the capital of Trentino with more than 100,000 inhabitants, is situated at an altitude of 190 metres on the flat ground of the Adige river Valley, located between Lake Garda and the Dolomites, between Venice-Verona and Bolzano-Innsbruck. Dominated by the nearby Bondone (2.170 m.) and Paganella mountains (2.125 m.), Trento is a city of art, of history and represents a crossroads for the contrasting cultures of Italy and northern Europe.

Originally a Roman city, Trento became famous for the Council (1545 -1563) which gave rise to the counter-Reformation. Trento's rich artistic and historical heritage is to be found in its monuments, which embody the centuries of history written under the dual influences of northern and Italian cultures, still evident today in the variety of architectural styles.

Among the many faces of Trento, one of the most striking is that of the alpine Renaissance city, which has been restored to its original splendour by recent restorations. Places to visit include the Castello del Buonconsiglio (the castle which was home to the prince bishops of Trento for many centuries), the Duomo (Cathedral) and its splendid square, the houses decorated with frescoes, the churches of the Council and its museums.

Today Trento is a university city and hosts advanced research centres as well as renowned international cultural institutions. The city of Trento is a prominent cultural centre and is committed to the development of an economic and business culture. It hosts conferences, meetings, exhibitions and it has recently launched the very successful International Festival of Economics.
Thanks to its wide range of cultural offers, the city of Trento is considered an active innovative centre but at the same time it retains a strong bond with traditions. The different services Trento provides for its citizens make it one of the most pleasant cities to live in when compared to other Italian cities.
Due to its geographical position and its strong bond between man and mountain, Trento is often described as an Alpine city. Trento also offers a wide range of activities, excursions and the chance to practice numerous sports.
