Take a Walking Tour of Italy to Hike the Dolomites in Trentino-Alto Adige
Trentino-Alto Adige is a region of Northern Italy that once belonged to Austria and Hungary, with which it shares borders. As such, Trentino-Alto Adige boasts a unique culture that you won’t have found anywhere else on your Italy holiday. This northern region is very mountainous, and is home to a large portion of the mountain ranges of the Alps and the Dolomites. Walking is a great way to experience the Dolomites, but if you’re looking for something different, consider cross country skiing in Dobbiaco.
Discover Trentino-Alto Adige with the Italian Holidays Experts in Australia – Italia Mia
The capital city of Trentino-Alto Adige is Bolzano, which is a largely pedestrianised city dominated by the historic Castel Roncolo. Simply taking a walking tour around the city is a great way to explore, but to see Bolzano from an alternative perspective, Italian travel experts recommend taking the cable car up to the Renon plateau, where you can enjoy a bird's eye view of the region. Look closely and you may be able to see Barbian, Kastelruth, Karneid, Vols am Schlern, Jenesien, Sarntal, Villanders, and possibly even more!
Travel across the Austrian Border as a part of your Italy Holidays
Just over the Austrian border is the region of Tyrol (Trentino-Alto Adige is also known as ‘South Tyrol’), where the city of Innsbruck is located. Dating from 1180, there is lots of preserved history to enjoy in Innsbruck. Tours of Italy to Trentino-Alto Adige often include a visit to Innsbruck as the city is so close geographically. Serviced Italian travel makes it easy to visit both destinations, taking care of the formalities and practicalities of crossing between these two incredible countries on your trip to Italy.
