When planning a holiday in Alto Adige we were looking for some options to do a little sightseeing apart from the beautiful mountain scenery there.

Thanks to Maurizioago we had a wonderful option of discovering Bolzano together with him!

We spent a fantastic - but extremely hot - day together and had a great tour guide who showed us the well known sights, but also the hidden gems of Bolzano.


Little VT meetings always make a city more special for us - and Maurizio did a fantastic job showing us around! I especially loved the bookstores that he went to, the fantastic frescos in that church that we would not have discovered without him and of course the little narrow streets!

Had it not been so hot that day (it must have been over 30°C) I would have loved to walk along the river a little more, but we decided to go back to the little cooler and shadier areas instead, which was wonderful as well!

Maurizio, mille grazie once again for making this day in Bolzano so special for us!

    Nearly delivered a baby in Bolzano in 1960 after traveling from Germany to Bolzano via the winding Brenner Pass before they built a bridge over the rough roads.

    Beautiful page Christine! Seems like you had a great time in Bolzano! :-)) I never realized that this is such a beautiful city! I really like those frescos in the Domincan Church and Cloister.

    Excellent page with interesting and useful tips and wonderful pics! Piazza Walther looks very attractive. The Cathedral and the Dominican Church have their charm on your photos. Thanks Christine for the virtual tour.

    Great page :)) I see that you had a splendid local guide! The arcades remind me of Bern. Bozen seems to be a very pretty town.

    Been wanting to go since I saw a presentation at library here. Butchers wear a cute traditional hat fm time of the guilds I think. Those plates are really appetising! Looks like the 3 of you had a good time!

    I saw the same warning of flash floods when I was staying in Brixen/Bressanone in 2005 and I was also wondering what it was about! I really like this page, it brings back wonderful memories.
