Valsugana

Overview

A land of castles, mountain lakes and green valleys

In south-east Trentino lies the Valsugana, a land of enchanting castles, like the medieval Pergine Castle, with wonderful views of the Brenta Dolomites.

To breathe the purest air, you can stroll through the Alboreto del Tesino, nicknamed the “Garden of Europe”: a 14-hectare botanical garden rich in plants and exotic species.

The picturesque Saltoni del Zengelo waterfalls are accessible via wooden walkways and bridges, which run along gorges and waterfalls overlooking the Grigno creek.

You can cycle along the scenic Valsugana Cycle Path, past villages and apple orchards, around Lake Caldonazzo, the largest lake in Trentino. Or you can hike along Via dei Pescatori (Fishermen’s Path) to admire the water lily-rich corners of Lake Levico

To enjoy the most spectacular views of the Valsugana, you can climb to the summit of Pizzo di Levico, almost 2,000 metres above sea level. You will first encounter the Fortress of Busa Verle, then, along the mule track leading to the cross of Cima Vezzena, you will pass over the ruins of a former Austro-Hungarian fortress and finally admire breath-taking panoramic views from above.
