Why should you stay in Bolzano/Bozen or nearby?
For a good nomadic tour in the Dolomites, you need a well-positioned “base camp” that will allow logical travel patterns and will minimize the time needed to get to different areas.
Bolzano/Bozen, as base camp, is the correct choice for different reasons:
1. A perfect logistical position
It is conveniently located in the middle of the various Dolomites mountain groups, which allows us to get to any of the mountains in a very short time (30 minutes to a maximum of 2 hours by car).
2. Good accommodations in hotels and B&B
The accommodations in Bolzano are of the same quality as in the famous tourist places, but are much cheaper. In high season you will definitely appreciate how much calmer it is in Bolzano.
3. Great cultural and traditional attractions
During your rest days you can visit numerous artistic and cultural treasures right in Bolzano, including the historic medieval town center, several magnificent castles and the Reinhold Messner Mountain Museum. In addition, it is easy to add a visit to the amazing Thermal Spa of nearby Merano. The biggest one of its kind in Europe. Relaxation will become a fundamental part of your holiday!
4. Save money of the transfers
Forget the car during your trips in the mountains! Your mountain guide will transport you in his car and you can enjoy the spectacular scenery while he takes care of driving and navigation.
