Above Bolzano

During a trip prepared by Hand Crafted Travel® you can ride the cable car from Bolzano/Bozen, Italy to Soprabolzano/Oberbozen. Glide silently above vineyards, farmhouses, and tiny villages, then at the top you can pop into a local restaurant for lunch, continue your journey among the mountains on a narrow gauge train, or choose among dozens of hiking trails with views of the Dolomites.

View of the Dolomites from Kastelruth

It takes a bit of a leg and lung work to reach the top of Monte Calvario, in the village of Kastelruth/Castelrotto, Italy. But those who put in the effort are rewarded with stunning views of the village church, Alpine meadows, and the massive rock of the Schlern-Rosengarten region.

Whether you opt for a small group tour or a self-guided adventure, on trip prepared by Hand Crafted Travel you'll discover that there is more to Italy than just Venice, Florence, and Rome.

Alpi di Siusi

The Alpi di Siusi (Seiser Alm in German), Europe's largest Alpine meadow, is part of the Dolomite range in northern Italy. This region belonged to Austria-Hungary until the end of World War I, and most locals, still speak German as their first language.
