Trento in October?

We will end a cruise early Oct. in Venice and then pick up a car. A must on this trip is Ravenna. My husband also wants to see Trento. Since after Ravenna we will wend our way thru Tuscany, etc to Rome is a detour (at the start of our trip) to Trento too much? Also, is it a place better to visit in the spring or summer? (I'm looking for ammunition to drop Trento unless it's really special.)
PS Any special hotels, restaurants in Ravenna?
Mille grazie

Sorry Gigi but Trento is very interesting and the entire Trentino/Alto Adige is spectacular in October.

Somewhat close, but in the hills above Bolzano in reality, Schloss Korb, a castle-hotel, is wonderful. http://www.highlight-hotels.com/korb/en/index.html

Gigi,

The other posters are right ---Trento is worth the trip. A wonderful old town, interesting castle, and very good shopping.

We stayed at a special hotel on the mountain northeast of Trento --about 4 km outside of town. It is called the Villa Madruzzo--- a beautiful,18th century walled villa with gardens, fountains and tree-shaded walks on its extensive grounds.

If you decide to go, ask for accomodations in the "ancient" part of the villa --- refined antiques and reproductions in rooms wiht 15 foot ceilings, but with very modern baths.
The room prices are very reasonable and the hotel restaurant was packed on the night we stayed there. (Tuxedoed waiters and a lengthy wine list.)

There is a modern addition sitting adjacent to the villa, but why stay there unless you get a room in the original structure.

The web site is:

You will definitely like Trento!

I too love the Trentino region and suggest you try to include it. However, I prefer to stay at either Riva del Garda or Castelrotto--both are within a :30 drive of Trento.

Due Mori in Trento, for lunch or dinner.

Best wishes,

I second the Villa Madruzzo, just outside Trento. Lovely place and you can sit outside and see the mountains. There is an old winery near, too.

In Alto Adige we stayed at Castel Fragsburg in Merano which is wonderful but not a good travel base since it is way the heck on top of a mountain. Ate at Castel Pergine in Valsugana, very close to Trento and would not recommend it for food or lodging. Lago Caldaro area is a very convenient and beautiful place to stay--right off the autostrada between Bolzano & Trento. Stay outside the village near the lake.
