Sunny side of the Alps

South Tyrol is Italy’s nothernmost province, bordering on Austria and Switzerland. Located on the sunny side of the Alps, South Tyrol captivates visitors with its Mediterranean climate. The majestic foothills of the Alps in the North blend into the lush greenery of vineyards and orchards further South. Palm  and olive trees create the charm of a southern atmosphere, and the sun shines longer and more frequently than anywhere else in the entire Alpine region. This special mood is reflected in the relaxed outlook on life and the eager hospitality of South Tyrol’s inhabitants.
