Curon Venosta

Curon in the tri-border region Italy-Austria-Switzerland comprises the Lago di Resia, Lago di S. Valentino and the Vallelunga valley.

The steeple that soars from the waters of the Lago di Resia is considered the symbol of the upper Val Venosta. However, the municipality of Curon has got much more to offer than Lake Resia and Lago di S. Valentino farther south. The component localities are Curon, or New Curon (Nuova Curon), Vallelunga with the ensettlement of Melago at the head of the valley, San Valentino alla Muta and Resia at the eponymous mountain pass.

In summer this area is particularly popular with those who love cycling as the Via Claudia Augusta is one of the most frequented cycle tracks of Europe, stretching down towards Merano. If you love mountaineering, we recommend you the Vallelunga and the Val Roja, where hiking trails and Alpine routes stretch up the three-thousanderes at the border to Switzerland. This is also where the famous Palla Bianca glacier is located.

Also in winter Curon in Alta Val Venosta is worth a visit. With Belpiano and Malga S. Valentino, the municipality offers two skiing areas and is in part also connected to Nauders farther north. Not yet satisfied? Ice sailing, snow kiting, ice surfing at Lago Resia and a horse-drawn sleigh ride across the fariytale winter landscape make your holidays in Alta Val Venosta a special experience.
