Day 2: Meet with tour conductor at hotel. From Bolzano, a half hour journey to Merano, an elegant spa city, an important location with an established tourist tradition. Our guide will also reveal some secrets. After lunch, a bit of free time and then a visit to the flourishing gardens of Trauttmansorff castle. You will appreciate the numerous botanic species all thanks the mild climate of Merano. This explains why this has become a location privileged by many tourists of central Europe. The Rametz castle wine cellars will delight our senses. Abundant wine and speck tasting… Stay in a hotel in the area.

Day 3:
Travelling through the wide Venosta Valley we reach Sluderno. After a brief stop at the antique “Quairwaal” irrigation canals, the Trapp counts will welcome us to a guided tour of Coira Castle with its époque furniture and above all the vast collection of armour. A stop to soak up the atmosphere of the small, antique city of Glorenza completely surrounded by a wall, followed by lunch in the high Venosta Valley. The Ortles glacier reflects of the waters of Lake Resia. The church bell which rises above the level of the water gives evidence of the cruel destruction of the village of Curon through the construction of a hydroelectric system. On our way back we can still take a walk in Lasa, location for the extraction and processing of refined white marble.

Day 4: We will go to the town of Tirolo. A short walk will take us to Tirolo castle. During the visit we will discover how Mainardo II, one of the counts of Tirolo, with his deeds, gave the name to this land. It has recently been expertly renovated and now hosts the historical and cultural museum of the province of Bolzano. Before having lunch in the “Schloss Tirol”, you will have time to visit the centre for the recovery of birdlife. If you are lucky, you may see some birds of prey. In the afternoon, yet another castle, Fragsburg: interesting, not only for it position near a waterfall. In the late afternoon we will head back to Bolzano.

Day 5: Depart after breakfast. Private transfer is available to the next destination.
