Dolomites and South Tirol

rachel_thecat

Sunny and mountainous, the Northern Dolomites are Italy’s better-tempered version of Innsbruck. Limestone peaks tower high above lush meadows backed by blue sky, differing considerably from the sometimes moody Alps. Skiers and snowboarders won’t be disappointed; however, the region is home to Alpe di Siusi, Europe’s largest high-alpine meadow. Luxe resorts, mouth-watering strudel and storybook backdrops are abundant, with plenty of panoramic summits to explore on foot. This bicultural region is decidedly heavy on the German vibe, with most signs appearing in both Italian and German. South Tirol, acquired from Austria after World War I, still reflects vestiges of the old world, with quaint towns and hut-like farms dotting the hillsides. Get truly lost in the village province of Castelrotto where the 250-foot bell tower is the main attraction and locals still dress in traditional garb. Take a break from pastas and pizza and try a traditional Tirolean dish of stinco di maiale, roasted pork shank garnished with potatoes.
