Cima Paganella In Paganella – A Complete Guide

Cima Paganella is a mountain of the Brenta Group in Trentino. With a restaurant, treks, and insane views, here’s all the info for visiting.

How To Get To Cima Paganella

Cima Paganella, which translates to ‘Top of Paganella’, is the peak of the Paganella region.

To reach Cima Paganella, you must take cable cars from Paganella 2001 in the town of Andalo.

The ride up takes roughly 15-20 minutes by cable car. And you are rewarded with some of the best views in Trentino!

We recommend renting a car for your entire Italy trip. That way you can pick up the car from the airport and explore the region at ease. Another option is of course a private taxi to the town of Andalo.

If you’re in a large group, or would simply like an English speaking guide, then we highly recommend booking with Brenta Walk.

What To Expect At Cima Paganella

Standing at 2,125 metres, Cima Paganella gives a 360 degree panoramic view over the peaks of Trentino.

From the very top you can view the whole region and see places such as the Brenta Dolomites, Lake Garda and all the surrounding cute Italian towns. 

Cima Paganella is one of the most popular places to visit in summer or winter. With it having several ski resorts, treks, and plenty of diverse plant life, it’s a fun stay whatever the season.

The main focal point of the mountain top however, is Rifugio La Roda. A hearty Italian restaurant, serving up locally sourced foods. As well as boasting a beautiful backdrop of the dolomites.

After fuelling up on fresh food there are many deck chairs or grassy areas to relax on and take in the view. Or you may want to give one of the numerous walks a go.

We trekked the Sentiero Delle Aquile (The Eagle Trail). The trail takes roughly 1 hour 30 minutes one way, and gives even more breathtaking views of the valleys below.

Overall there is plenty to do at the top of Cima Paganella. And if you’re looking for a view in the region, there is no better place to visit!
