Fodor's Expert Review Castel Pergine

Via al Castello 10, 11 km (7 miles) east of Trento, Pergine Valsugana, Trentino-Alto Adige, 38057, Italy Fodor's Choice

The stone and brick chambers, prison cells, and chapels in this labyrinthine 13th-century castle (occupied by Trento's prince-bishops in the 16th century) today contain spare, rustic guest rooms with carved-wood trim, lace curtains, and heavy wooden beds—some of them canopied. Modern-art installations grace the grounds, and the popular candlelit restaurant (nonguests welcome) serves lightened-up versions of ages-old seasonal recipes from the area; guests can opt for half board.
