The Ways of Ritten, Bolzano

A highland plateau close to South Tyrol’s capital of Bolzano, Ritten is a popular area for summer visits due to its number of summer spas and cool hiking trails. Located between the river Talvera and Iscarco, you can get the best views of the Dolomites from here.

The region is home to a fair number of wineries and it’s worth noting that vineyards cover half the hills under Oberbozen, including the famous St. Magdalener.

The Dolomites: Pretty Crags

The jagged peaks of the Dolomites

Straddling Italy’s northern mountainous borders, the jagged peaks of the Dolomites is famous as the birthplace of via ferrata (or the ‘iron way’), when Italian and Austro-Hungarian troops devised metal ladders to traverse this vertical landscape during WWI. Today, this pristine UNESCO World Heritage site is a popular place for hiking, climbing and of course, via ferrata. Surrounding this collection of unruly crags are picturesque alpine pastures and small rest huts where you can enjoy a hearty meal after a long day’s activity. Excursions and via ferrata trips are available from the nearby town of Bolzano.
