On 3 November 2018, Bondone was officially named one of “Italy’s Most Beautiful Villages”, becoming the sixth place in Trentino to boast this important accolade.
Baitoni, a district of Bondone, was founded and developed following the reclamation of the plain in front of Lake Idro in 1848. Its proximity to important roadways facilitated its growth. It acts as the valley’s window onto the lake, to which it is connected by a public beach with sporting and recreational facilities.
Points of interest
Lake Idro Nature ReserveSet on the 12 km of Trentino shores along Lake Idro and boasting the prestigious Bandiera Blu (t/n Blue Flag - a certification awarded to bathing areas that meet cleanliness conditions) since 2017, the Nature Reserve is what remains of a large lake area that once extended further north but was reclaimed from 1848 onwards. Rich in plant and animal biodiversity, it still preserves the original natural habitats where a remarkable variety of sedentary, migratory or wintering aquatic birds can be admired. Svasso, Coot, Moorhen, Water Rail, Little Bittern, Night Heron, Grey Heron, Kingfisher, River Nightingale and many other birds can be observed in their own environment, without disturbing them.
