Holidays / Excursions
Discover and relax

Rovereto and Vallagarina offer holidays and relax on several levels: in the valley, along the Adige river, on a picturesque vineyard and more vineyards after another. Numerous cellars invite you to taste their wines. A wide range of restaurants offer typical regional cuisine to match the wines, waiting for you to discover their culinary delights. Nestled on the hillside, where they were safe from the waters of the Adige, lie picturesque small and large towns, the silk town of Rovereto with its numerous museums and the velvet town of Ala with its palazzi and narrow streets. Numerous medieval castles, each more majestic than the last, are enthroned above the valley floor as witnesses to the history of the border region and the historic trans-European road connection Via Claudia Augusta. One step higher up the valley there is unspoilt nature to admire, such as the Brentonico plateau in the Monte Baldo Nature Park, the terraced fields in the Val di Gresta or the boundless alpine pastures of the Lessina plateau. Finally, the rocky peaks of the Little Dolomites of Vallarsa or Monte Baldo are also very attractive - a splendid setting for various outdoor activities such as cycling, mountain biking, hiking, climbing, ... everyone can find something to do there!

Spring, Summer, Autumn, ...

... and some winter impressions

More than 35 km of ski slopes await you on the Brentonico plateau. In addition, there are cross-country ski runs, ice-skating possibilities and marked snow-shoe tours. But winter in Vallagarina is not only winter sports: in December the villages awaken the adventurous anticipation of Christmas with all its traditions. A particularly beautiful Christmas market can be found in the medieval castle of Avio, or in the baroque palaces of Ala. Castellano and Rovereto also invite you to traditional pre-Christmas events. Get in the mood for Christmas together with us!

Basically, the Romans looked for the shortest route for the Via Claudia Augusta. The Roman road therefore ran as straight as possible, usually on the sunny side of the valley, slightly above the valley floor, so that it was not affected by storms and was quickly dry and snow-free again after rain and snowfall. Of course there are exceptions to all rules.
