Trento blew me away from the first time I stepped off the bus on the banks of Adige river. The edge of the city and the surrounding mountains were shining in the sunset glow, and I had an immediate feeling that I was going to love Trento.

I was in town for the Traverse 2019 conference for content creators, and I ended up staying a few days before and after the conference to explore Trento and the surrounding area. Walking the cobblestone streets in the old center, I felt that Trento was special. Buildings have well-preserved frescoes from the 16th century painted on their exterior, the mountains can be seen from every angle and the people are incredibly friendly.

The Buonconsiglio castle stands proudly at the northern edge of the city. The castle is one of the best ones I've seen, and that's saying a lot seeing how I road-tripped around Trentino and visited more than 15 other incredible castles in the area. Extremely well preserved, the castle offers unique insight into the culture of Trento and its rich history.

The city has a lot to offer and you can spend at least 3-4 days exploring it. Rent a car and explore the rest of the Trentino area during your visit, you won't regret it!
