Welcome to South Tyrol!
Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol, or what I refer to here as generally South Tyrol (we mostly stayed in Bolzano) is the region in North Italy where the Italian Alps form. Before this trip, I didn’t know there was an Italian side to the Alps (I’m too loyal to the Swiss Alps), but hey, the more you know!
This region was so odd in it’s quiet and secluded ways, but amazingly beautiful. I highly recommend if you want to see more to Italy such as the tiny mountain villages, crazy history, and the strange use of German in Italy.
