The southern part of the Adige Valley, around the former silk city and today's peace city of Rovereto, is called Vallagarina or German Lagertal, which reminds of the time when it was part of the Habsburg Empire. The Vallagarina, which has always been a crossroads of cultures, a link between plain and mountains and between Italian and German culture, welcomes you with a lot of cultural and outdoor activities.

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.
