The Trentino Music Festival
Attractions and Sightseeing
The Trentino Music Festival is held each summer in the heart of the Italian Dolomites a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
A location has to be extremely special to appear on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list. It has to present a unique, unspoiled natural landscape and be safeguarded by outstanding environmental laws. The Dolomites are one of the most imposing mountain landscapes on the planet. In terms of uniqueness, the Dolomites have outclassed any other place in the world for their beauty, the diversity in natural landscapes and their geological significance. The Dolomites, also known as the Pale Mountains, with their fine beauty are among the most beautiful mountains in the world. Everyone knows of the unusual splash of colors lighting up their peaks, and the contrast between the soft lines of the rolling hills and the jagged, powerful peaks reaching for the sky.
The festival itself is held in the towns of Mezzano and Primiero in the spectacular Primiero Valley, one of the most gorgeous areas you will find within the Dolomites. With historic Mezzano at the entrance, reaching up to the unmistakable panorama of the Pale di San Martino, the Coral Reef of the Dolomites, the region boasts a long and rich tourist tradition. Activities abound in the Dolomites. Whether you enjoy music, amazing food and wine, or outdoor sporting activities there is always something to do in the Dolomites. For participants or visiting family members that want to venture out on weekends, the festival is only a short drive or bus ride to historical cultural centers such as Venice, Verona, Innsbruck, and Salzburg. Participants will be allowed ample time to explore the region and enjoy all that Italy has to offer. Have your friends or family take in the TMF performances and then plan the vacation of a lifetime.
