Apple trees are in full bloom in Trentino’s Val di Non – which makes it a perfect time to plan a visit to this large valley in the western portion of the province of Trento famous for its delicious varieties of Melinda apples.
But there’s more to Val di Non than just apples: the Brenta Dolomites, Tovel Lake, the ancient Sanctuary of San Romedio, the majestic Thun Castle… And any season really is a good season to vacation here thanks to the many activities you can enjoy throughout the year:
- snowshoeing in winter,
- hiking and biking excursions in summer,
- fall foliage and food fairs in autumn,
- and more…
we’ll tell you all about them in future blog posts, so stay tuned!
