A rich variety and countless opportunities are waiting for you in Bolzano, the capital of South Tyrol. With 100.000 inhabitants, Bolzano is a true city - at least according to South Tyrolean proportions. Look forward to medieval arcades and exclusive shopping. Not to forget the near-by hiking paradise of San Genesio Atesino and the recreation areas of Renon and Val Sarentino!
Relaxation and recreation are provided on the Renon, a rich green plateau featuring earth pyramids and a cable car. Slightly north of Bolzano lies Val Sarentino, with lots of culture and traditions. Have you ever seen this beautiful embroideries, made by using a feather quill pen? Ask for them and people of Val Sarentino will be more than willing to introduce you to this refined kind of art.
