Imagine spending a day on a bike ride where stops are not just stops, but opportunities to get to know the Vallagarina area through one of its main products: wine! In Vallagarina, land of wines and castles, you will find numerous producers who will be happy to open the doors of their wineries.  All this in the shadow of the manors that for centuries have been observing from above the events that take place in our territory, such as Beseno Castle, the largest fortified complex in Trentino, Pietra Castle guarding the ancient border, Noarna Castle with the mysterious stories intertwined with witch-hunts or, again, the Sabbionara d'Avio Castle with its imposing keep and ancient pictorial cycles. As you can see, there are many ideas for a visit to Vallagarina, have you already booked your next stay?

Author’s recommendation

Visit Beseno Castle, Castel Pietra, Castel Noarna and the Castello di Sabbionara d'Avio: you will be more than satisfied!
