For those who live in the Trentino and love the mountains: this breath-taking panorama from the Monte Altissimo over the Lake Garda is not to be missed.

Near the high plateau Bretonico you can find a parking area shortly after the location San Valentino near the alpine hut Rifugio Graziani, serving as the starting point for this tour. The path SAT n. 633 is a gravelled road, also drivable with mountain-bikes and very much adored by German tourist. It goes along the semi-steep slope, completely exposed to the sun and very poor in terms of vegetation (therefore, this hike is recommended for autumn or spring, sun blocker and peaked caps for kids). Demotivated or tired children, who cannot even see the hut in the distance, can be motivated with a piece of chocolate. You reach the alpine hut Rifugio Damiano Chiesa after 1 h and 30 min. From the hut you can reach the summit in a short time, enjoying the spectacular and unique view of the Lake Garda. Near the hut you can also find a church and an observation point with indications of the surrounding summits, visible from this point (Bondone, Pale di San Marino, etc). Return via the same
