Bolzano, the precious jewel of Trentino-South Tyrol surrounded by mountains

Bolzano is a melting pot of cultures and faces: modern and tranquil, this capital of a region so compact and yet so vast is also rich in vestiges of the past. Forward thinking, yet deeply rooted in ancient traditions, it is a true marvel, surrounded by the Dolomites and well worth a lengthy visit.

A city of great charm surrounded by mountains

Bolzano lies in the vast Etschtal, or Adige, valley, making it the so-called Gateway to the Dolomites – a border point between Italy and the Germanic world. With the backdrop of the mountains and breathtaking landscapes, the historic centre is small but has a huge personality, hosting various iconic monuments, from Walther Square to the Archaeological Museum. Bolzano entices with its rich traditional flavours, along the Wine Road and at its many restaurants.
