The medieval village Canale di Tenno is a must-see for those who desire to immerse themselves in the magic of a place, where you breathe history, art and culture. 

The village, entrenched on a mountain slope halfway Lake Garda and the Brenta Dolomites, has been included in the list of the Most Beautiful villages in Italy and this is not surprising: narrow paved alleys, arcades, small internal squares, houses set one against the other still maintain the original 13-century structure .

The village was abandoned after the war, but in the sixties it came back alive thanks to lively cultural activities. The Casa degli Artisti (Home of the Artists), dedicated to the painter Giacomo Vittone, has its seat here and is a meeting place for artists from whole Europe.

Another highlight is the beauty of its surrounding landscape: from its 570 metres you can admire the splendid Lake Garda, and behind it the imposing mountains, or you can reach Lake Tenno, one of the most cleanest stretch of water in Trentino.
