Tucked away in luscious gardens near the bustling centre of Merano, the Hotel Adria offers excellent levels of service, accommodation and cuisine. A former villa dating back to 1885, the Adria is home to a belle eopque revival - think classic and simplistic design with an Art Nouveau twist. Gold filigree fixtures, bright and airy rooms, marble floors and intricate cast iron stair cases are strewn throughout the property creating a luxurious and comforting atmosphere. 

Cuisine is an incredible important part of Italian culture and the Adria embraces that wholeheartedly offering a stunning four course dinner of 'Alpine-Mediterranean fusion' with fresh homemade pastas and seafood all served alongside a phenomenal wine list in the panoramic dining room. 

There is a sleek indoor pool with massage fountain, Turkish bath, hot tub, salt steam bath and whirlpool all of which offer gorgeous views of the verdant gardens surrounding the hotel. A plethora of massage and beauty treatments are also available but must be booked and paid for locally. For those wanting to explore the gorgeous resort of Merano, the Adria is located just 15 minutes away from the heart of Merano via the gorgeous Passer and Etsch riverside promenades. 

Transfer time: approx. 2 hours 15 mins by coach from Verona airport.
