The ‘urban‘ side of South Tyrol

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.

Völlan-Foiana

The hometown of the DolceVita Hotel has chosen its location wisely, the tidy little village of Völlan: It seems to be situated in a remote spot and yet right in the midst of things. In the mountains and still not far from the valley. Above Lana and not far from the town of Merano, the sun shines calmly down on this woodland and meadow terrace. Völlan is the ideal holiday spot whether you are looking for an active holiday or just relaxation.

Lana

Lana

Lana – one big village. Small enough to retain its rural charm, yet large enough to be able to offer some culture and a lengthy stroll around it, and colourful and lively enough to truly inspire.

Meran-Merano

Meran-Merano

The noble spa town of Meran-Merano still exhibits some of its former ’belle epoque‘ aristocratic atmosphere today in the form of magnificent buildings, well-groomed promenades, residences and castles and arcades and alleyways. This is a town reflecting the era of artists and emperors, poets and thinkers, noble spa guests and adventurous explorers.

Bozen-Bolzano

Bozen-Bolzano

Bozen-Bolzano is where the south begins. Although the provincial capital is surrounded by popular alpine images such as the Rosengarten and Schlern mountains, there is a lot that is Italian here. Bozen-Bolzano is colourful and intoxicating. The town is the beating heart of South Tyrol and a melting pot of two cultures.
