The words ‘South Tyrol’ conjure up images of steep mountain peaks, the Dolomites, craggy rock formations, meadows, green pastures, with perhaps a bit of woodland or a bit of vineyard. Yet South Tyrol also has its ‘urban’ side.
Anyone who has spent a day in lively Bozen-Bolzano or in elegant Meran-Merano will think of ornate buildings, meandering alleyways and picturesque arcades when they think of South Tyrol and have lasting memories of the unmistakeable Mediterranean-Tyrolean atmosphere.
The DolceVita Hotel Alpiana Resort gazes calmly down towards Lana. The nearly 12,000- strong village is one of the largest in South Tyrol and features a number of pretty churches and imposing fortresses, as well as having a cultural side in the form of musical or gastronomic events. A bit of the town in the countryside, you could say.
Yet Bozen-Bolzano and Meran-Merano, the lively capital and elegant spa town respectively, can be quickly reached from the DolceVita Hotel Alpiana Resort. And they are both well worth the visit, being different from each other and both interpreting South Tyrol’s cultural contrasts in their own special way, which makes a comparison between the two virtually impossible.
If you want to see more of Italy, a day trip to Venice, Lake Garda and Trentino come highly recommended. These destinations may be reached in under two hours’ drive from Alpiana Resort.
