Trentino-Alto Adige

Trentino-Alto Adige is a beautiful, mountainous region in the north of Italy, bordering Austria and Switzerland. Interestingly enough, inhabitants of the region’s northern province, Alto Adige, don’t speak much Italian at all. Because of its roots as an Austria-Hungarian land before 1919, those living in Alto Adige (which is also called South Tyrol) speak mainly German to this day.

Seeing as it is a peninsula and it juts into the Mediterranean, it is understandable that so many of Italy’s regions are known for the stunning beaches and seaside resorts. Trentino-Alto Adige, however, offers Italians and tourists alike a very different but equally entertaining attraction: skiing. Approaching the town of Madonna di Campiglio, visitors will find themselves in one of Italy’s most notable and stylish ski resorts. Most famous for its intermediate slopes, beginners and advanced skiers can enjoy their time here, as well as the neighboring ski towns of Folgarida and Marilleva, connected to Madonna by the lift system. Madonna alone boasts 56 miles of slopes but should a visitor buy the Superskirama pass, they would have access to all three towns—totaling 94 miles of ski slopes.
