The different historical periods of the city are perfectly integrated in stone castles, shaded colonnades and medieval murals.
Located in the west of the main dolomidi mountains, the Brenta mountains look like an island of rock. For a long time, these towering peaks in the park of the Parco Naturale Adamello Brenta are well known among climbers for their steep cliffs and dangerous steep slopes.
Several of the world’s most famous vie ferrites are built on the dangerous slopes, where you can stand on the dizzying trestle to test courage and courage. Among them, via Ferrata delle Bocchette was pioneered by British climber Francis Fox Tucker in the 1960s.

Parco Nazionale dello Stelvio
Different from Yellowstone Park in the United States, Parco Nazionale dello Stelvio, covering an area of 1346 square kilometers, is the largest national park in the Alps. It covers an area extending to the neighboring Lombardy area and borders on the Swiss Parco Nazionale Svizzero. The vast majority of visitors to the park are hikers. The well managed mountain cottages and clearly marked hiking routes in the park form a network of trails extending in all directions, which is not only very challenging, but also requires the necessary climbing skills, unlike other places in the Dolomiti mountains.
Although skiing facilities are rarely seen here, Parco Nazionale dello Stelvio has opened several well run ski trails in Solda and Pasos Stelvio, where you can experience rare year-round skiing.
Val Gardena(Gröden/ Gherdëina)
The Val Gardena, located between the Sierra mountains and the Sasorongo Turret, although geographically close to Borzano, retains many of its former traditions. Beautiful and lively villages, simple rural buildings and numerous woodcarving shops all highlight their unique cultural characteristics.
As a part of the Dolomiti Superski, the valley has become a ski resort for “everyone”. The classic ski path and high-quality powdery snow are its biggest attraction.
The vast and desolate Sesto Dolomiti straddles the border between Austria and the Veneto region. Spectacular hiking and cross-country ski trails crisscross the Valle Campo di Dentro and Val Fiscalina. For inexperienced hikers and family tourists, most of the roads around the “three peaks”, especially the gentle No. 102 trail, are relatively easy, easy to use, and have a panoramic view of the beautiful scenery of the “three peaks”.
