Reception Booklet
AIESEC Trento Welcomes you!
Trento is a small town in the middle of the Italian Alps. Coming from a Roman,
Medieval and Germanic heritage, it's a town with beautiful architecture and with a rich
cultural and historical background.
Given the well-organized university structure, Trento is quickly becoming a popular
student town. Student sign-ups are booming, and in some faculties growing 30% every
year. This has had positive effects on the city life as well. Had you come to Trento four
years ago, there would have been only one bar offering happy hour, which would then
close around 22.30. Now, however, you can easily find one happy hour per night in
various bars, not to mention bars where you can have big discounts with an AIESEC Card.
The regional territory is unique, offering great landscapes, outdoor activities in the
mountains, rivers and lakes, as well as being a great skiing destination in the winter. The
cost and quality of life in the city is constantly at the top of the Italian charts.
In this context, AIESEC Trento acts as a reference point for incoming international
students, providing an internship, and in some cases providing accommodation and food.
Also organizing events to favour the integration of foreign and local students, events on
the weekends, trips to nearby cities, offering a hand in sometimes complicated
bureaucratic issues, and trying to provide you with the best exchange experience of your
life.
To find out everything about the things just mentioned and much, much more please
read the following booklet, which AIESEC Trento has worked hard to prepare.
Good luck and welcome to Trento!
AIESEC Trento
Life in Trento
Trentino-Alto Adige
Trento is the provincial capital of the province of Trentino. Along with Bolzano, capital
of the province of Alto Adige-Sud Tyrol, they forms the main city centers of the
autonomous region of Trentino-Alto Adige.
The region is characterized by strong linguistic and ethnical differences. The province of
Bolzano or Bozen, is comprised of a German speaking majority, given it’s strong
historical ties with the Austrian Empire, though most people know Italian almost as well,
if not as well as German. In various valleys you can find Ladin speaking communities.
Ladin is a Latin derived language with influences of Italian and German, but it comprises
it’s own linguistic group; they even have a daily 15 minute news program in the
language.
Territory
The territory is prevalently characterized by mountains (from the Alps to the Dolomites),
broken by valleys, rivers and lakes which offer some of the most fantastic natural
habitats in Italy. The Dolomites, giant pieces of stone jutting out from the Alps, have
recently been nominated as natural heritage by the UNESCO. Below “Pale di San
Martino”.
Hundreds of hikes an climbs are available and during the winter the region becomes the
destination for thousands of skiers. There are also many lakes and rivers, like the Lago di
Garda (biggest in Italy), Lago di Caldonazzo (closest to Trento) and other smaller but not
less beautiful lakes. The Adige river crosses through the city and heads for Verona and
the Noce river in the Val di Sole will host our rafting event in May
Living and eating in Trento
Trento is not what you would call a lively city, but as more and more students pour into
the city bar and pub owners have started picking up the pace. We don’t doubt that you
will always find something to do.
The cost of life is medium (slightly growing). You can find private rooms from 180-250
Euros but also up to 300 Euros a month. If you eat out often food prices are pretty
standard, 1.50-2.00 Euros for a slice of pizza, 2.00-3.00 Euros for sandwiches. With the
student card you can get a full meal at the canteen for 3.50 or smaller plates for 2.20. If
you are out for aperitif you can expect about 2.50 for Spritz and 3.00 for a medium beer
(out of happy hour). There are a few supermarkets in the center of town, but also
various discount supermarkets a little farther out. You can take a bus or an Ecomobile to
go shopping there and save some money. There are a few restaurants which are
affordable even for students (like Pedavena or Rosa D’Oro) and pizzerie or restaurants
like Grotta which have huge portions of pasta or pizza (very popular AIESEC destination).
As for fast food, there is a McDonalds to the south of the city and not much else. There
are various kebab parlors and Chinese restaurants to choose from, as well as a couple of
Indian restaurants (bit more expensive). As you will see in the discount page at the end,
there are also some pizzerie and bars where you can have discounts with your AIESEC
Card.
Shopping
If you need to do some shopping for stuff, there are some larger shopping centers
towards the north and south of the city. You will have to take a bus or bike there (but
don’t expect too much). On Thursdays though, there is the town market, where you can
find all sorts of useful things (clothes/sheets/shoes/food) for a lower price.
Smoking
In Italy there is no smoking in covered public
places. You can buy cigarettes or tobacco packs in any tabaccheria or in automatic
distributors, where you will need your codice fiscale. Tabaccherie are general stores and
you can tell which they are by the big T outside the store .

Challenge) or AIESEC Academy.
The projects take place in Trento and some of them in province around Trento. Most
provinces are located within 10 to 15km from the city center of Trento and it’s very easy
to get there by bus or tram.
The main thing that you want to remember is that you must bring your own laptop. Even
when all the working places have a computer room, is better to bring your own “working
tool” in order to work more efficiently.
During the welcome week we also take you a tour of the city center and show some of
the most important landmarks in Trento.
Other important stuff
Libraries
It is important to know that in order to prepare your lessons you can take or check some
activities or material from the books at the libraries. Most working places, specially the
schools in eduCHANGE have a private library inside of the school, where you can consult
all the books and encyclopedias for your lessons.
Also, there is a public library in each city and province of Trento. You can check their
catalogue online or printed inside of the library and you can consult the books within a
day or borrow it for a month, but be aware that not all the books can be borrowed.
The first time you go to a public library, you have to apply and take a card that you have
to use in each library of the city during your stay here. Other libraries in Trento are the
Biblioteca comunale, which is situated in Via Roma, 55, and has big studying rooms and
a great amount of books you can consult in many different languages. For the library
card all you need is you passport or official ID and your address in Trento.
Accommodation
Accommodation is normally provided in private apartments where you will live with
other interns, or in small “school” house and in some cases with a hosting family. In any
case, accommodation is provided to you for FREE.
Hosting Families
If the accommodation provided to you is with a hosting family please be responsible and
help them as much as you can. Interact with the family members often; It will help you
to have a richer “ITALIAN EXPERIENCE”.
You can organize a night with “your family” where you can cook come typical food of
your country or some games in order to involve them more in a multicultural experience.
Remember: from the moment that they receive you, they are considering you part of
their family!
The cleaning of your bedroom will be your own responsibility, and this might remind
clean and tidy ALL THE TIME.
School House and Share Flat/Apartment
If your accommodation is provided in a school house or shared apartment/flat you will
be responsible for the place together with the other interns that you might share the
house with. Please be responsible and keep the place as clean as possible, the same way
that you will receive it at your arrival. All damages that could be caused in the house
during your stay will be charged to the responsible of it.
The cleaning of the house will be interns responsibility and for that reason we have
“Surprise control staff” that will check if the house is in a proper way (clean, tidy,
organized and without damages). Which means that the house cleaning MUST be done
everyday: Do you bed before to go to work/university, don’t leave clothes creased,
clean the kitchen and the toilet, and the most important: take the trash out to avoid
bad smells in the house.
If the house has not cleaning instruments we will provide them to you. Being sustainable
is your responsibility, please: Separate garbage, don’t waste water, food, light, gas.
We will also provide you with a poster that provides you all the information about
“garbage separation”, since in Trento ITS MANDATORY and subject to fines from 50 up to
150 Euros.

Euros will be ask to you, this fee is completely reimbursed at your departure only if any
damage is occurred during your stay in the place and if the house is returned in the
same conditions as we give to you: organized, clean and without damages.
Guests
In case that you have friends or family visiting you, you MUST ask AIESEC Trento if they
can stay in the apartment/flat before. All guest are welcome in the apartment but you
have to be conscious that you are going to live with other interns and the time of visits
must be arrange with all the flat mates in order to avoid problems.
Remember: communication is crucial when leaving with other people, so it's always
better to ask than assume!
Parties
Parties WITHOUT authorization of AIESEC Trento are totally forbidden. Since we as
organization are the main responsible of the place, we want to make sure than when we
make a party is as much organized as possible. This means that we have the permission
of neighbors and its done according to the building/housing rules and it will not interfere
with the other interns schedule. In this case, if you would like to host a party please let

at an expensive restaurant and spend all the money in one meal it will be YOUR OWN

Many shops, bars or services (bus, train) are not always enabled to accept credit cards.
It is probably best that you bring a debit card or credit card that enables you to take
money from ATMs. When you draw money from other banks’ ATM machines there is a
surcharge of 2.00 Euros.
What to bring to Trento
Clothes
The weather is a little bit extreme during the different seasons. During the summer the
temperature goes up to 45°C and during winter can goes as low as -15°C. But don’t be
scare about these temperatures. All working places and house have heathers, so you
won’t be cold.
Spring and Autum: Make sure you bring your swimsuit, the temperature is warm enough
to go to the lake and sun bath. A light jacket and sweater might be also a good idea to
bring, since in the morning and during the night is a little bit cold.
Also you might want to bring your gloves or winter hat if you prefer, since sometimes get
a little bit colder. Specially at the beginning of the spring and end of the summer, the

close to the mountain.

Getting Around – Transportation Services
There are several ways of making your way through the city of Trento and thanks to the
small dimensions of the city center, it is pretty difficult to get lost!
Bicycles
Trento is not a big city and the easiest way of getting around is by bike. In the winter
time the roads are normally cleared from snow, but it is important to drive your bike
carefully. The bicycle is a functional and ecological way to move around the city and in
the surrounding areas.
There are good opportunities to have a bike without necessarily buying it. There are 250
bikes of the Opera Universitaria at students’ disposal. This service is called “Prestabici”
and the interns of AIESEC Trento and all the other users authorized by the Opera
Universitaria should pay 5,00 euros every month for the bike. You can have the bike for
your entire stay in Trento and then return it when your internship finish.
Local Buses
Trento has an efficient public transportation service based almost exclusively on buses
(some of which are hydrogen powered). The company, which manages the Public
Transport of Trento is the “Trentino Trasporti” (http://www.ttesercizio.it/).
Where to buy bus tickets


At the little automatic “kiosque” at the Railway Station of Trento (right beside
the bus stop)

At the Ticket Office at the Central bus station of Trento

At the FTM Stations (i.e. Railway of Trento-Male) of Trento and of
Mezzolombardo (single tickets only)

At any Tabaccheria (there is one inside the train station as well); You can choose
if you want to buy single tickets or a “carnet” of 10 tickets (a single ticket costs
1.00 Euro and a carnet costs 9.00 Euros).
A single ticket lasts 70-minutes and can be used to change different buses in that lapse
of time (has to be validated on every bus you board); 120-minutes tickets cost 1,30
Euros and daily tickets cost 2,60 Euros. The penalty for not having or for not validating a
ticket can go from 15 to 150 Euros, so be nice and play by the rules.
Railway Lines
Trento is well connected to the other Italian cities thanks to the Trenitalia services. The
main railway links are Bolzano, Verona and Bassano del Grappa. From Verona you will!
then be able to take a direct train to many cities in Italy. From Bolzano you have access
to Austrian and German destinations. From Bassano you can head to Venice or Padova.

An AIESEC Friend for You – Buddy Program
What is a buddy?
During your stay in Trento, YOU WON’T BE ALONE! You will have an AIESEC Buddy!
A buddy is an AIESEC Member or an associate member of AIESEC who provides you some
help in arriving, adapting and integrating into the new environment.
The EP-buddy relationship depends solely on the two people. We assign the buddies
according to the information that you will provide us in the Expectations Form. Buddies
are someone who checks up on how you’re doing all your internship in Trento, make you
feel at home, comfortable and help you in any situation.
Parties and Nightlife
As Trento is becoming more and more a University town, bars and pubs are adapting to
the new student environment. Almost every evening you can find happy hours in various
places and you have discounts in some bars with the AIESEC card.
A typical evening activity is the aperitivo, a pre-dinner light drink used to socialize. The
most famous is undoubtedly the Spritz (sparkling white wine and Aperol mix), a slightly
alcoholic orange drink, which you will learn to love. It is usually served with an olive or
orange slice and chips. We may organize some special aperitifs like International aperitif
or Tandem Café throughout the year. Aperitifs are very popular, generally in bars near
Piazza Duomo, and you can find hundreds of students out on certain nights (Tuesdays
usually).
There is a lack of discos, which some pubs make up for by turning their basements into
dance halls. AIESEC Trento will however, organize various parties in a nearby disco,
arranging with the owners to have a free bus ride. Most parties will be free theme but
we do organize several theme parties like Halloween, 70's, Black & White, Hawaiian and
others. If you have some small costume elements that you can afford to bring we
encourage you to do so.
Of course, being in Italy, you will also have a chance to taste some great wine. There
are various Enoteche in the city where you can have a taste of the good stuff. There are
many vineyards in Trentino and we may organize a trip to nearby canteens. In Italy wine
is used mostly for celebration or casual social events. It is not really part of Italian
culture to use wine to get drunk so drink it moderately and try to enjoy it as it should be
enjoyed. One glass of good wine is much better than a bottle of cheap supermarket
wine. If you ride your bike on the cycle route to Rovereto or Mezzacorona you will ride
through beautiful vineyards and apple trees, the second specialty of Trentino.
Remember to drink responsibly and possibly don't exaggerate when you go out to party!
