Review of Trento (Italy)
Advantages: cheaper than many in the area, clean, comfortable, easy access to sights Disadvantages: bathroom not great, no restaurant

Advantages: Good shops, architecture and food! Disadvantages: Cost and language.

I went with my boyfriend from Saturday night until lunchtime Tuesday. So really we only got 2 full days. I would say 4 full days at most is all I could manage.
Not that it wasn't good, just there is only so much...
