South Tyrol

Not Italy, but no longer Austria – simply South Tyrol – a country between alpine cosiness and southern temperament, with influences from two very special countries. That’s the charm of the beautiful South Tyrol. In addition, there is a magical landscape, a hearty cuisine and beautiful little towns. Explore the autonomous region of South Tyrol on foot on the South Tyrolean Wine & Alpine Trail, the hiking tour Lake Reschen – Lake Caldaro, on the Sweet Chestnut & Vineyard Walk or the Dolomites High Route!

The climate in Italy

The climate in Italy is as varied as the country itself. In South Tyrol, hikers can expect a mild mountain climate. And as you’d expect in the Alps, the winters in the Italian Alps are also very cold and austere. This the reason why our hiking tours in the Italian Alps do not begin until May or June, because the snow often lasts for a very long time. The climate is a bit milder if you head a little south, i.e. towards Lake Garda. A bit more south, so in Piedmont and Liguria, there is already a Mediterranean climate. In southern Italy, very hot temperatures can be expected in summer. The perfect time to travel on our island tours in the south is spring and autumn. In pleasantly warm temperatures, hiking is most beautiful!

A look into Italy’s cooking pots

Pizza, pasta, risotto, carpaccio…should I continue? We are very grateful to the Italian cuisine. So we say a huge ‘Grazie’! Almost every region has a variety of dishes that are world famous. Therefore, don’t expect to lose weight on your hiking tour! The temptation is just too strong. A traditional Törggelen in South Tyrol, a hearty Merende with tasty bacon in the Italian Alps, a wonderful plate of freshly caught fish from Lake Garda, a heavenly risotto with fresh truffle in Piedmont and typical Sardinian pasta in southern Italy. Look forward to the countless dishes you want to try!

La Pizza napoletana

Probably the most famous dish in the world – the pizza – has its origins in Italy, more precisely in Naples. Pizza was already eaten in the 18th century, and probably much earlier, but in a much simpler form. We know the inventor of the Pizza Margherita, as we know it today, was a certain Signor Raffaele Esposito, who worked for the Brandi restaurant in Naples. He was told to serve King Umberto I and his wife Margherita a dish. The rest is history. The most famous pizza in the world, named after the king’s wife, consists of three toppings: red tomatoes, white mozzarella and green basil – the national colours of Italy. Today, there is even an association, the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, which is tasked with preserving the preparation of the only true Neapolitan pizza. Pizzerias all over the world belong to this association and can boast about serving real Napoletan pizza. Compliance with the recipe and preparation is regularly monitored by the association. In Italy there is also Pizza Romana, which is very thin and crispy, Pizza Genovese, a variation of Focaccia with thicker dough and the pizza al taglio which is served by the slice and usually available to buy in the street. But let’s be honest, no matter what kind of pizza you choose, have you ever eaten bad pizza in Italy? Almost impossible!
