Guess what? Trent is also named and spelled Trento - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.
Trent is located in the valley of the Adige River, in a region called South Tyrol. This region was Austrian territory before the World Wars, but was subsequently taken over by Italy. However, culturally, the region preserves the cultural duality, and consequently one will find a mixture of Austrian and Italian buildings, food, and languages everywhere they go. Despite being the educational, financial, and political centre of Northern Italy, Trent remains an atmospheric Alpine town where you can wander around in the narrow Medieval streets or just sit by the river and take in the breathtaking scenery provided by the Dolomites. A stay in a Trent hostel might just be the best option for being right in the middle of everything the area has to offer.
The top attractions of the city are all situated around the Renaissance town square. One of them is Trent Cathedral, which is an impressive twelfth-century building built over the remains of the church from the sixth century and the stupendous Fountain Nettuno right in front of it. Another one is the Buonconsiglio Castle from the thirteenth century, which used to be the residence of the Bishop of Trent. It is preserved in a very good state and is definitely worth entering as it houses some of the most precious examples of International Gothic Art in Europe.
The other reason why Trent is a popular destination is that it is surrounded by the Dolomites, providing some of the best hiking trails of the country. You can easily take a cable car up to Pass Pordoi and enjoy the unparalleled beauty of the Italian Alps, visit one of the nearby lakes, or do a hike on one of the last glaciers of the area. However, if you are not the adventurous type, then you might enjoy the modern and well-organised exhibitions of MuSe - Museo delle Scienze.
