Bolzano is the capital of the South Tyrol region in northern Italy and the largest city in that area. The city is located in the Bolzano bowl at the convergence of three rivers- Eisack, Talfer, and Adige. During the Middle Ages, the city was extremely important for trade as it served as the meeting point for the two primary Alpine routes— The Brenner route over Brenner Pass and the Via Claudia Augusta through Reschenpass. Today, Bolzano is an important centre for education, agriculture, business, economy, modern lifestyle and industries. The city excels in the field of science and research. The immense support from the government and private sectors has resulted in plenty of innovations in the field.

The multilingual and multicultural Bolzano city gets its variety of events and culture because, in ancient times, the city was under the reigns of the Romans and the Germans with the influence of Italy. The city used to be a marshy area as it would often get flooded with either of the three neighbouring rivers. The first settlements in the town were of the descendants of Etruscan refugees who later flew from Italy to invade the Gauls. In 15 BC, the Romans built settlements here under the reign of General Nero Claudius Drusus. In the Middle Ages, Bolzano gained independence from the Romans. The city was ruled by the Bavarians, the Longobards, the French, and the Goths. During the 1300s, the city came under the rule of the county of Tyrol; and this was the time when the commercial projects took flight.

The 14th Century started the rule of the Habsburgs for Bolzano, which continued for nearly six centuries and came to an end in the 20th Century. With the expansion of Bolzano southward through into new "Semirurali" districts and the industrial region, where there had previously only been orchards and vineyards, fascist Italianization got a new urban plan in 1935. This significantly changed Bolzano's appearance. Thirty years later, lots of development and modernization took place, and Bolzano turned from a commercial town to a tourist city, and Bolzano has been growing magically ever since.

If one thinks- What is Bolzano famous for? It has so many things to offer that you might need a good 7-day holiday in the city. Storm Runkelstein Castle, Duomo di Bolzano, Franciscan Church and convent, Walther Square, and Dominican Church are all the monuments you must visit and absorb as much of history as you can. A stroll under the majestic Arcades will give the true experience of being in Bolzano. The views from the splendid Dolomites of the Italian Alps are truly breathtaking! The winters are harsh here and the food you get just matches the low temperatures here. Thanks to the German, Roman, and Italian influence that has proved to make the food in Bolzano is a true heaven for the taste buds. Treat your palette with freshly baked pretzels, the sweetest kapfren and rollen (pastries), delicious canederli (dumplings), and alpine pasture cheese made in the beautiful mountains itself. Bolzano restaurants are equally amazing with great ambiance and good food. 

Bolzano is the best city to roam around if you want to experience a mix of cultures, different backgrounds and histories. Business tycoons would love to stay here for a day or two to know more about the economic centre of Tyrol County.

The city of Bolzano is in the basin of the three rivers- Eisack, Talfer, and Adige. It's marshy land but does not let yourself think that the city might not have convenient transportation. Local buses, taxis, cable cars, trains and private cabs are all available to move in and around the city. If you have planned a long holiday here, take your time to explore the town at your own pace.
