Cable Car to Sardagna
I had bought my "Trento card" a few days ago and it was time to use it. It features a 48-hr pass to all the city museums and other attractions in the surroundings, like the Cable Car to Sardagna. I thought it would be a good activity to do in the morning as most of the museus would be closed. I got just in time before the Cable Car departed. As soon as you arrive you can see a spectacular view of Trent, but unfortunately the weather was a bit misty and the view was a bit blurry. I loved it anyway. Then, you could do a little trekking route through an unpaved road called "Romana Strada" all the way up to the hills of Trent.

At first I couldn't find my way up, but a lady was very kind in instructing me how to find it. Again, Italy's lack of signs is a trouble for those new to the country.
A bit of a closeup of Trento
I was lucky to met a finnish guy on the road there, it's always more entertaining to walk a road with someone. Then I realized the road was a bit too long and steep for me to walk it all. I just made it to the first stop (Piazza dei Pozzo) and decided I would walk down from there. My new friend insisted me in completing the route, but I really felt I couldn't do it! I think I need a little more physical condition hehe. Also, I couldn't spend too much time up there as I wanted to visit the Diocesan Museum in Trent later in the afternoon.

So, we parted ways there, and I started my descending. The view from the mountain wasn't all that great since there were meany heavy trees (it kind of reminded me of Louisiana), but the fresh air from the mountain was definitively a revitalizing experience. I had a little blister on one of my feet on the way down, but again, I think I need to walk more and more often, lol.
