Rome has the Pope

Bolzano in the Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol has everything else.

Soprabolzano (Oberbozen) a 20 minute Funicular ride to the Dolomites... 

and the Geyerhof where we have spent many a holiday cross-country skiing and hiking the trails in the summertime.  We were greeted like old Friends and served a fantastic Lunch (Christoph is still one of the finest chefs in all of Europe and I have told him so many times).

Bolzano (Bozen) also has a sensational everyday market.
I can never decide which grapes are my favorite.  Is it the Muskatel or is it the Regina grape?

 Nothing is missing at the Bolzano market

Not even my favorite Bouquet, the Tussie Mussie.
(I will have to show you how to make these with Lace paper doilies). 

Bolzano also has Ötzi, the Iceman

Old and exhausted, with an arrowhead lodged in his shoulder – this is how the Iceman met his death 5,300 years ago.
Since the discovery of the glacier mummy, a window has been opened on this unexplored, often misunderstood period of history: Ötzi expert Angelika Fleckinger summarises what experts from a variety of disciplines have painstakingly unearthed about Ötzi’s life and death in research lasting many years. Superbly detailed close-ups and impressive general views, including colour pictures of the Iceman’s equipment and clothing, bring to life one of the most sensational archaeological finds to date. Everything you wanted to know about the Iceman, in authoritative, compact and vivid descriptions.


The DiscoveryThursday, September 19, 1991 – 1.30 p.m.Tisenjoch - 3210 m above sea level
Ötztal Alps (South Tyrol, Italy)

On a sunny day two hikers, Erika and Helmut Simon, from Nuremberg in Germany, were walking in the Ötztal Alps. Descending from the Finail peak in the Tisenjoch area, the Simons decided to take a shortcut and left the marked footpath. As they walked past a rocky gully filled with meltwater, they noticed something brown on the gully bed. At first they thought it must be some sort of rubbish, but on closer inspection they realized with horror that they had discovered a human corpse.

People live to a ripe old age in Bolzano, working hard every day.

 Never again will I complain about how hard I have to work in my garden. This elderly Ladies' garden is so steep she had to use a stick to balance herself. Early, every morning, she worked in her garden and gathered vegetables for her family. 

 The wine harvest was in full swing at the Hotel Hanny

Espaliered Apple and Pear trees line the lower valleys. 

Bolzano has everything

Why not  see for yourself.
