Bolzano (called Bozen by the local German speakers) is very quaint with elegant arcaded streets, beautiful piazzas, pretzel sellers, wine bars, beer halls, and colorful facades. Known as the gateway to the Dolomites, the alpine backdrop is picture postcard perfect. Enjoy free time here before heading to San Michele for an extraordinary lunch.
