May has always been the month of going out, in which the desire to be outdoors, after the long winter months and the typical whims of March and April, is irrepressible. A desire that this year, given the forced closures to which the pandemic has forced everyone, is felt even more strongly.
And so great is the desire to move, to go and discover or rediscover new territories, but also seek out unexplored corners close to home.
Trentino is definitely one of the places at the top of many Italians' wish lists and May is the perfect time to explore it . To make the visit even more attractive, the Trentino Wine and Flavors Route launches Gems of taste , a calendar of initiatives, aperitifs, tastings, hiking in nature on weekends, everything to welcome the warm season .
A succession of events to be experienced outdoors , among vineyards, woods and meadows in bloom, with excursions on foot or by e-bike, guided tours of history and culture enriched by tastings of wines and excellent food, with some "forays" in the cellar .
Proposals to live for the day or, for the more passionate, in a weekend along the territory of the Trentino Wine and Flavors Route , from the Cembra Valley to Lake Garda, from the Piana Rotaliana to the Vallagarina, from the Vigolana Plateau to the Giudicarie , from the Valle dei Laghi to Valsugana, passing through Trento thanks to the opportunities offered by Viaggi di gusto , holiday packages tailored to the needs of the guest by contacting the Association.
The entire program , illustrated in detail below , weekend after weekend, is available at the web address www.tastetrentino.it/gemmedigusto.
