A romantic food and wine tour in the historic villages of Trentino
February 14, the day of lovers, is not only made of chocolates and red roses, candlelit dinners and hearts in profusion.
Instead, overlooking Lake Idro you’ll find Bondone, an ancient village of coalmen, where you can venture into its labyrinth of lanes admiring the frescoes that decorate the facades of the houses and try the energizing polenta carbonera, a hit of the cuisine from Trentino. Then move to the eastern side of Trentino to discover romantic Mezzano, a village at the foot of the wonderful Pala Group that will bowl you over with its cataste e canzei, a permanent exhibition of wooden architectures before leaving try tosela di Primiero, a local cheese best sampled with polenta and luganega from Trentino. Your romantic tour through the historic villages of Trentino can end in Vigo di Fassa, a sunny village from which you can admire the Marmolada, the queen of the Dolomites, as she turns pink at sunset, visit museums and taste typical Ladin dishes like cajoncie da fighes and cher de fascia.
