“Great place to see natural items transformed into art”
Review of Arte Sella

The park is placed in a beautiful surrounding of mountains. It is divided into two parts. The first can be walked also by children – we have seen parents going on the forest path with trolleys and small children. A map of the place is given at the beginning and it helps to identify the various works of art which are placed in the natural enfolding. The second part is optional and a fee is required to access it. It contains a large amount of natural sculpture is a less "wild" ambiance. All in all a great unforgettable artistic and natural experience.

It was a lovely walk with very beautiful artwork. My children loved it as they could run in and out of them without destroying anything! Good family outing.

When you want to get away...far away...from the hordes of people in Venice and Florence, this is a great place to do so. About two hours Northwest of Venice (by car), entrance to Arte Sella is outside of Borgo Valsugana which, in itself, is placed in a picturesque valley.

The entrance to Arte Sella is about 6-7 miles from the main Borgo Valsugana road. Don't fall into two traps. The first is a restaurant with a sign that says "Arte Sella Information". They will indeed provide information, but they are a restaurant that does not seem to have any association with Arte Sella itself. The second trap is a medium-sized sign stating you are entering Arte Sella. We took the adjacent dirt road for about a quarter of a mile before realizing the road could not be right (it was so narrow, we had to back up the entire distance.)

There is a parking lot about a 5-10 minute walk prior to the real entrance, and it is as close as you can park. The exhibits themselves are extraordinarily creative, and the photos on the Web site are accurate and representative. You can see them all in about a circular mile of walking, but plan to spend 1-2 hours because you will want to take a lot of pictures of yourselves inside the exhibits (but don't climb on them!) The exhibits are sited in a lovely wooded area, and many look as though they grew naturally instead of being placed there by the artists.

This is a unique experience, so take your time and enjoy!

Thank you very much for your comment about Arte Sella.

We would like to specify two point related to the two "traps" mentioned in the comment. First of all the information point of Arte Sella located at the restaurant Al Legno is part of Arte Sella and is intended as a first welcome for visitors in order to give practical informations about the ways for planning the visit. Nobody forces visitors to buy something tha is not related to the information material provided by Arte Sella. Informations are also provided in order to let people understand the two pathways - Artenatura route and Malga Costa Area route - and how they can manage the two visits.

Based on input from the vast majority of visitors, we are confident that all the signals provided along the valley are clear enough to avoid errors; anyway we will check the point you are reffering to, where you were not able to understand the way.

Kind Regards and thank you for your visit and for appreciating our exhibitions.

If you can, do the full visit. Start with the ArteNatura route, then continue on to Malga Costa area. It is not difficult. The website says ~5-hour walk in total, but if you are fit, you'll probably finish in 4 hours or less.
In October restaurants may be closed. Carlon was closed on a Monday also. But the cafeteria at the entrance of Malga Costa seems to be open always. The small fruits seller near the parking lot at the Carlon is a good opportunity also. Try the wild Kiwis.
