  • Try to speak Italian

    Never forget, here you are almost always a guest at first, not a customer. Some tourists think locals wait desperately for an English native speaker, for trying out finally their poor English.In South Tyrol, most of the locals speak German which is great if you know it - you can easily get by.

If you look closely you can even find embroideries on top -...

    This part of Italy is bilingual: both Italian and German is spoken and all the signs are in both languages. This is due to the local history, during which this area belonged to Bavaria, Austria and finally Italy.South Tyrol/Alto Adige is an autonomous region of Italy, so things tend to be a little different than in the rest of Italy!I was really...

  • A deeply Catholic area

    Even if one is not particulary religious, it's tough to resist the setting of the quaint little churches that dot this area of Italy. I might even be moved to attend masses then! It is a deeply Catholic area so do show respect when hiking through it.
