Trento Card Reviews
I thought I would recommend this... but now I am not sure Jun 15, 2010
During the first days on my stay in Trent, I thought it would be a good idea to buy the so-called "Trento Card", a city pass to most museums and atractions.
There are two options, a 24 and a 48-hr card. I thought I'd get the 48-hr card since I had so much time in Trent and I did not want to see things in a rush.
The card includes access to the Castello del Buonconsiglio and the Diocesan Museum, which ended up being the two highlights of it. The But the fact is that I could have done those two attractions for less money and without having bought the card.
The problem I have with some of Trent's attractions, besides the complete lack of english information, is the relatively difficult accesibility. The information for the trekking in Sardagna said that the route could represent a "minor" problem for old people. WTH, I am 30 and by the half of the route I had almost passed away. Maybe europeans are healthier than we residents of the United States, but for me, what the card said was a joke. I don't see many people over 40 doing that uphill road.
Also, I wanted to visit the Alpine Heroes museum, but the problem is that you need to be an alpinist to get there! The card said that from the bus station is a 20 minute walk, but they never mentioned it's a very steep uphill walk! Not necessary to mention, most of these attractions are not designed for disabled/old people.
The card also includes an aquarium that does not exist (!) or at least it's not in the location mentioned in the brochures.
The other museums are not really worth it, so I think it's better to just get a ticket for the Castello del Buonconsiglio, which was the only attraction from the Card that I would really recommend. The Diocesan Museum is good only if you are a fan of religious art, not if you want information about the Council of Trent (which is the reason I visited it).
Don't get me wrong, I love Trent, but I think the best things from this city are its sights and not necessarily the attractions included in this card.
