VIA ROMEA (ITA 6) – Bolzano – Termeno
Bolzano fascinates the visitor with its double identity: through two real souls which share the city in a constant cultural and linguistic exchange. For centuries the chief town of this region has been a privileged centre for exchange between the Italian and the Germanic regions. A tangible evidence of such past may be seen in the churches, the palaces, the streets and the squares of Bolzano which deserve the attention of the traveler.
Things to see: The imposing Cathedral, the Dominicans Church, the Franciscans Church, the Civic Museum , which contains the famous Similaun mummy, or (Ötzi) the Ice Man. The Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Via dei Portici, Castel Roncolo. Fascinating lanes through shady woodlands will take us to the discovery of delightful ponds with crystalline pure waters. Hills clothed with vineyards, and extensive orchards, in a landscape that never ceases to amaze.
