Bolzano, Italy: Winter Wonderland!

Dolomites!

Bolzano (or Bozen in German) is an Italian Alpine city that has earned accolades for having one of the best quality of life in Italy. After a short stay in the center of Old Town, I couldn’t agree more. Situated in the midst of cascading vineyards, dramatic mountains, vast meadows and gorgeous resorts, Bolzano is a delightful haven for leisure travelers and adventure seekers alike.

Numerous activities await those who seek Nature’s solace in this picturesque city. To enjoy a breathtaking aerial view of Bolzano, whisk yourself up the magnificent Dolomites mountains via cable cars, which are easily accessible to visitors. During the winter months of November and December, you can look forward to the Bolzano Christmas market (also known as Christkindlmarkt), an annual spectacle that draws large crowds looking to immerse in the traditional spirit of Christmas.

Located just 2 hours up north of Venice and Verona, it is a miracle that Bolzano has yet to see hordes of tourists clamoring to experience its scenic beauty. For now, the crowds are refreshingly small, which makes Bolzano one of Italy’s best kept secrets indeed.
