Trentino-Alto Adige

The northernmost region of Italy, Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol shares borders with Austria and Switzerland. This mountainous region is fascinating in its cultural and historical complexity; it’s a place you can order strudel after your pasta and say danke after arrivederci. Be awed by the majesty of unique limestone mountains, visit a mummy, and travel to an Italy you didn’t think existed.

What to eat?

Canederli (bread dumplings) and apfelstrudel (apple strudel)

What to see?

Ötzi the Iceman, a 5,300-year-old mummy, at the Museo Archeologico dell’Alto Adige in Bolzano

What to do?

Go on a hike and take in the pink alpenglow of the Dolomite mountains at dawn or sunset.

Bocconcini-Sized Tales

Bolzano’s Neolithic mummy museo is in my top two museums of all time (the other is Halifax’s Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21). Sorry, Rome and Florence.
