Travel: Trento and Bressanone, Italy

We enjoyed a full day of discovery yesterday, starting from Verona and driving into the mountains of Trentino and the Alto Adige, the South Tyrol region of the Dolomites.  Our hotel is about 40 miles south of Innsbruck, Austria.

The weather has cooled significantly with temps in the low 30s at night rising to the mid 50s in the afternoons.  The best news is the nice sunny Fall weather has followed us all week.

The Fall colors are popping out everywhere, especially as we explore higher elevations.

  1. I’ve been to the Alta Adige region and have done some wonderful hiking there…even in a surprise torrential thunder and lightning storm. Moving into the real Dolomites is exciting.

    I’m in Bruges, having spent a few hours in Delft and Ghent on the way from Amsterdam. It has been an exceptional day. Xoxo

  2. Lovely pictures! the monastery is spectacular. This is a great time of year to see the region. Years ago, We spent some time hiking in the Dolomites near the Austrian border.

  3. Wonderful mountains! I’ve seen the Dolomites in winter and summer, the latter timed for the alpine flowers – a botanical trip. I loved hearing the cowbells everywhere. Even when it felt remote, civilization was never far away.
