The Tridentine Diocesan Museum is located right downtown in Trento, close to the San Vigilio Cathedral, in the Palazzo Pretorio, which was in the Upper Middle Ages residence to the Prince-Bishops of Trento. Established in 1903 to house Diocese's...more
This is a great museum. Numerous quality artworks on display. Great view to interior of duomo from top floor. Could so easily be a score of 5 if they would provide translations for foreigners. It doesnt make sense not to educate your visitors of the...More

Dear Loreen, thank you for your review. We know that we have to improve translations for foreigners visitors and we're studying a wide range of new educational tools in italian and English. Anyway, in the Council of Trento's room there are information sheets in English...More

Thank you so much for your great review TexasLibraryLady! We are glad you had such a good time here!

Dear Helen, thank you for your visit and your review!
Granted, Brussels tapestries may not be up every art-lover's sleeve, but these are well-nigh a "must" anyway, and at the very least, worth a detour. But Trent in any case deserves a visit in its own right as a historic place--not to forget the former...More
