When romantic images of Italy dance in your head, it’s probably gondola laden canals and leaning towers of Coliseums that come to mind, not jagged mountain peaks jutting up from dense forest. The mountainous terrain of the north of Italy, while no means off the beaten path, seems to get lost in the myriad of generalities that sum up this big and varied country. But it is a stunningly beautiful area, full of some of the most spectacular peaks in all of Europe and even giving the world’s biggest a run for the money in terms of foot for foot splendor. Not surprisingly, it is an area with many Germanic influences as much of it was under Austrian rule until the World Wars. Many cities still go by their German name in fact.
