Travel Blogs from Trento
This morning our suitcases have been condensed and re-arranged to allow for the achievability of toting them from the hire car drop off to the Munich railway station - a distance of not more than 150 metres.
Whilst the limit of what you may take on a train is determined only by what you can physically carry, we are mindful of the fact that in …
Our last day in Trento, went out in the morning for a ride to stretch the legs after yesterday. I found a fantastic bike path which runs next to the Adige River so followed that for little while. Had to stop on the way back to let a herd of sheep, goats and donkeys pass which is something you don't see back home.
I finished off by climbing up a large rocky outcrop which overlooks Trento called Doss Trento. The gradient was 15% + but only fairly short. Up ...
... accidents, one Aussie broke his back and is in Milan awaiting surgery we found out afterwards.
I got in a group of 20 odd which we finally got working together and doing speeds of up to 55 on the flat with the tail wind, we ended up catching a bigger group just outside Trento. Sat on the back of them for the next 15km till the foot of the second climb which, once again, everyone went up at their own pace. Climbed ok, the only guys going past were the U35 and ...

... and did the first leg of sundays' race, a Cat. 2 8km climb about 15km nth of Trento up to a little town called Verla and then back again.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
This B & B just outside of Trento in the hills is a wonderful and charming establishment more deserving of the just one night in which we stayed. It's onsite restaurant serves traditional foods and the entire establishment has a true old world ambience.
Rooms are clean, quaint and spacious. Breakfast, secure parking and Wi-fi included in tarriff.
Could recommend as a good base for exploring this region.
