Alto Adige, Italy


  • Culture and beauty at the north end of the boot.
  •  Southern Italy has proven itself as great travel destination, sure, but if you’re not into crowds and beaches, the north should be on your travel list, starting at Alto Adige (also known as South Tyrol). The autonomous region has a local culture that’s a mix of both Austrian and Italian influence, making it an incredibly unique part of the country. And nowhere is this more apparent than the cuisine, be it the Germanic influence of potatoes, root vegetables and pork sausage or the Mediterranean influence of delicate cheese and cured meat (try the speck). Besides eating, Alto Adige is also ideal for the outdoorsy type. Its location in the Dolomites of the Italian Alps makes it an ideal spot to visit year-round — in the winter, ski and snowboard in Madonna di Campiglio; in the summer, go hiking, climbing or cycling through the hills of Alto Adige’s Winemaking region. trenito-alto-adige-italytrentino-alto
