South Tyrol, situated between snow-clad Alpine peaks and Mediterranean sun, is Italy’s northernmost region, bordering Switzerland to the north-west, Austria to the north-east, and the rest of Italy to the south. The natural landscape along the Adige and Isarco rivers is breathtakingly beautiful – their fertile plains covered by vineyards and orchards are flanked by sheltered valleys and sublime mountains. The cultural landscape offers a wealth of highlights, both in proud hill towns and in picturesque villages: the trade route across the Brenner Pass along the Valle Isarco to Verona has been the main link between central Europe and Italy for centuries. Extensive fresco cycles of chivalric tales decorate the walls of the province’s rugged castles, and murals of the Romanesque to Baroque periods depict stories of the exemplary lives of saints in no less imposing parish churches: for centuries they have been accompanying merchants en route to Venice, pilgrims on the road to Rome, and knights on their quest to conquer the Holy Land.
