Trentino-Alto Adige

Northern Italy's mountainous Trentino Alto-Adige is a region of Alps and Dolomites, of lakes and Alpine planes, and of frescoed castles and Teutonic villages where the local food (and dialect) is German, not Italian

The Dolomites, bordering Austria, cap the eastern stretches of the South Tirol region with sharp pinnacles straight out of a fairy tale, while the peaks of the Alps crown the west.

This region is comprised of legendary resorts like Cortina d’Ampezzo and Merano, as well as cities such as Trent (Trento) and Bozen (Bolzano—home to a fascinating international scientific treasure, the prehistoric "Ice Man") that lie at the crossroads of the German and Italian worlds.
