TRENTINO ALTO ADIGE TRAVEL INFORMATION AND TOURISM SUGGESTIONS
Trentino and Alto Adige, it's important to bear this in mind. The region includes Bolzano, Trento, Selva Val Gardena, Merano and Riva del Garda. Two distinct zones and, for anyone who has been, the northern cultural border of Italy is clearly Bolzano.
But it's a difficult call and even the ice man Otzi was fought over, eventually to be preserved for another 5000 years in Bolzano.
Not that the likes of Merano, or more correctly 'Meran', are completely Austrian. The Ladino culture more than thrives in this part of south Tirol.
What is shared is a love of gastronomy and reverence for the mountains. As far south as Trento, the lower slopes of the valleys are almost entirely dedicated to apple and peach orchards. An amazing sight.
Its difficult to beat a ski holiday in the zone of the Dolomites. A Superski pass offers access to the whole territory.
The most southern corner of the region is Riva del Garda, right on Lake Garda. The microclimate of the lake allows olive and lemon trees to grow.

The Sarntal Valley sits in the centre of Alto Adige and together with the valleys Passiertal, Ritten and Ultental forms the so called 'Im Herzen Südtirols'. To get your bearings the road heads north from Bolzano straight into the valley and takes in Ponticino and Sarentino before forking at Campolasta; left into the Val di Pennes for Sonvigo, Rio Bianco and Pennes; right into the Valdurna for San Martino and Valdurna.
