Tree Houses in Trentino

Tourism authorities in Trentino are considering a novel approach to attract tourists to their northern Italian province. Guest houses built in trees. These could fill a certain void in the area's tourism landscape, suggested Mauro Delladio, a councillor in the province.

"There are campsites for caravans and campers; there are hotels, residences, beds and breakfasts," explained Delladio. "(We could) add a new offer for those who want to live in the middle of nature," he said.

The idea is drawn from similar tourism attractions offered in parts of the United States and Northern Europe, he suggested. So why not in one of Italy's northern-most provinces? "Trentino is rich in forests," which makes it very suitable for such an attraction, he explained.
