Italy - Trentino Alto Adige

Traveling Europe at 19 years old was honestly not the brightest thing to do, thinking back drinking, finding a cool place to hang out and catching a tan where my priority.
Now that i am older and wiser i would like to return to many places and Italy is right at the top of the Europe list.
Funny how thing happen in three's - i've been saving pictures of italy lately, then a friend of mine just told me she as planning a trip there and now my son has come home telling me he has to do a project on Italy !!!
So i am now doing research on the beautiful country and thought i may as well share it with you all.
I've decided to start from the top and work my way around as there are just too many amazing places to see, i think it would 6 months to do it properly but the budget i would need is beyond what i have right now - so here goes to planning and dreaming xxx

Trentino Alto Adige is situated in the very north of Italy bordering Austria and Switzerland, and is best known for the beauty of its peaks the best. 

Its territory stretches from the Adamello-Brenta range and the peaks of Ortles and Cevedale to the most striking mountains in Europe: the Dolomites of the Fassa Valley, Brenta, the Gardena and Fiemme Valleys and Pale di San Martino. This setting encloses an extraordinary variety of landscapes: magnificent snow-capped mountaintops, woods, wide valleys, streams, lakes, the enchanting play of light between the spires of the Dolomites, typical villages with soaring bell towers, and the myriad shades of unadulterated nature. 
Hundreds of miles of ski slopes make this region a cutting-edge tourist destination - Madonna di CampiglioCanazeiMoenaSan Martino di Castrozza are the best known resorts, popular in both winter and summer for their natural surroundings, sport activities, and fun. 
The landscape of Lake Garda is particularly picturesque; it narrows in Trentino, appearing as a fiord between the high mountains. 
Land of confluence between Latin and Nordic worlds, Trentino Alto Adige is the guardian of a remarkable cultural heritage, made up of prehistoric evidence, charming castles, sanctuaries and towns with great historical and artistic significance. 
A number of spa towns offer treatments and therapies, of which MeranoLèvico TermePeio, Rabbi and Comano Terme are the most famous.
