Archaeology & History Sites in Trentino-Alto Adige


Capital of Trentino-Alto Adige, the city was founded by the Romans with the name Tridentum, perhaps after the three hills resembling three teeth on which it stands. The Episcopal Principality of Trento was established in 1027, lasting 800 years until the Napoleonic period. It only became part of the Kingdom of Italy at the end of the First World War. The view from the city is of mountain peaks and parks, explaining the strong connection with nature.
