Capital of the Trentino-Alto Adige Region, the elegant city of Trento, already inhabited in pre-Roman ages by the Reti community, takes its name from “Tridentum” because of the three hills (“teeth”) surrounding it.
Conquered by the Romans in the 1st century BC, it became Municipium so a city linked to Rome, due to its strategic position in the communication axis between north and south through the Via Claudia Augusta.
From the 4th century AD ,it became an episcopal chair. The third bishop of Trent, Vigilius, was the first great leader of the Tridentine Church and was martyred in 405 AD, later becoming the saint patron of the city and the object of veneration throughout the region.
San Vigilio is celebrated on June 26th, after several days of festivities that involve the entire city, including shows and events, during what we call the Vigilian Feasts.
From 1027 to 1803, Trento was an Episcopal Principality within the Holy Roman Empire. In the mid-sixteenth century, the city was the seat of the Council of Trent, chosen as a geographical and cultural crossroads between the Italian and German areas. After about 100 years in the County of Tirolo, Trento was definitively annexed to Italy in 1919.
Universitarian city, Trento is located in the heart of a territory with a high tourist and cultural vocation, surrounded by splendid natural landscapes, home to museums of international importance such as the MUSE and the MART, and embraced by the Dolomites – UNESCO World Heritage.
10 monuments and museums to visit in Trento

It is one of the largest monumental structures in Trentino. From the 13th to the 18th century, it is the residence of the prince-bishops of Trento. It is composed of a series of buildings from different periods, including the Torre Aquila with the famous “Ciclo dei Mesi”, one of the most important profane pictorial cycles of the Middle Ages.
2. San Vigilio Cathedral
The Cathedral of Trento, built in the XIIIth century in Romanesque style on the remains of an early Christian basilica, dominates the surrounding square of the same name and reaches its maximum splendor in the evening, illuminated at sunset. Most of the bishops of Trento are buried there.
3. Duomo Square and the Neptune Fountain
Piazza Duomo is the heart of the city. It is surrounded by small typical of the Trentino architecture buildings , such as the picturesque Cazzuffi-Rella frescoed houses and the thirteenth-century Palazzo Pretorio, enclosed between the Civic tower and the so-called Castelletto. Neptune and its trident, in the center of the square, represents the symbol of Trento.
4. Underground archaeological area of the Sas (S.A.S.S.)
Archaeological area of ancient Tridentum, you will find 1,700 square meters of the Roman city in a fascinating and evocative setting.

The large area consists of public and private spaces and buildings, including a domus, a large segment of paved street and two large mosaics.
