Val Venosta, unspoiled nature, history, good food for a green holiday, on foot or by bike, far from the city
Val Venosta is a place of stunning beauty in the north of Italy, a green gem set among high, magnificent mountains. It stretches for about 80 km, from Merano, in the province of Bolzano, to the Resia Pass, on the Austrian border, the place also famous for the old sunken bell tower that rises from the waters of Lake Resia.
Val Venosta is the perfect choice for a true green holiday, in fact it's crossed by footpaths and cycle paths cutting through a scenery that knows no comparisons, and is also equipped with a fast and efficient public transport network. Ditching the car and taking relaxing walks or bike rides is the best way to enjoy the countless beauties of this region.

The Stelvio National Park in Val Venosta
For a relaxing holiday inside the Park take your time to stroll through the woods or the meadows and to walk along crystal clear streams breathing fresh air. Here is where the more expert can have fun recognizing rare animals and plants, or identifying the different climatic bands that cross the park.
The Stelvio National Park has some important visitor centers as well, such as the Acquaprad, near Spondigna, easy to reach by the Val Venosta railway and by bus; this is the perfect place to learn pretty much everything about water. On the other hand, geology lovers shouldn't miss the visitor center of Trafoi, which can also be reached by bus, along the road that leads to the Stelvio pass.
