INTRODUCTION

"Cascata di Trento" ("Waterfall of Trento") is a name that I made up for this rather prominent yet obscure waterfall that we noticed multiple times while both driving by and touring the city of Trento. I couldn't dig up any information concerning this waterfall, which was why I just decided to give it an unofficial name based on the city it was adjacent to (see photo above).

Julie and I noticed this waterfall at least two or three times while driving the A22 autostrada past Trento. Unfortunately, we couldn't find a suitable place to pull over to admire this fairly tall and prominent waterfall neither along the autostrada nor along the strada statale (state road) paralleling the high-speed freeway. It turned out that the only time we were able to literally stop and admire the waterfall during our visit to Trento was from either our hotel room in the Grand Hotel Trento or from the roof of the Grand Hotel Trento. I'm sure there must be other ways to see the falls, but our experience was pretty much limited to the distant views you see on this page.

So given the lack of literature that I was able to find on this waterfall, I can't really say much regarding its longevity (it seemed to be seasonal even though it had a pretty healthy flow during our visit), the historical-looking church perched higher up the exposed cliff face containing the waterfall, nor the actual height of the falls. Any help regarding this bit of missing info would be truly appreciated!

DRIVING DIRECTIONS

I'm sure there are multiple vantage points both within the city of Trento as well as its surroundings. The trouble is that we couldn't find sanctioned places to safely stop and admire the falls. Thus, we can only advise that we were able to see the falls from the Grand Hotel Trento (where we spent the night), which was literally a block from the centro storico (historical center) of Trento.

For some additional context, Trento was 61km (under an hour drive) south of Bolzano, 50km (under an hour drive) east of Riva del Garda, 213km (2-2.5 hours drive) northwest of Venice (Venezia), and 224km (over 2.5 hours drive) northeast of Milan (Milano).
