Getting There

The mountains in Trento: Marzola summit

It's a panoramic peak that overhangs the Adige Valley and the town of Trento (194 m.) from south-east.
It's a low mountain but very popular because the Marzola is a sort of " balcony" above Trento. When you are on its top the surrounding view is fantastic:
from its western slopes one can see Trento and the Adige Valley (the most important connection between north and south Europe) , the Bondone (cima Palon 2100m.) range until
Stivo mountain( 2058m.) and Altissimo di Nago (2079m.),Caré Alto (3463m.), the Brenta group in the background then the tableland of Vigolana (Becco di Filadonna 2150m.)
From the eastern slopes another great point of view, the Valsugana valley with the Caldonazzo lake and Levico lake and the range of Valsugana mountains and the Lagorai.
A breathtaking vision of 360°
