Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Adria is pure elegance in the centre of Merano. They’ve carefully brought the Art Nouveau building into a new era with a perfect blend of classic interiors and modern comforts. Think parquet floors, bright walls broken up by rich fabrics, and vintage furniture. The attention to detail is incredible and it’s instantly a place where you feel at home.

We love heading straight for the spa when we arrive here. There’s a modern indoor pool with hydro-massage fountains, Turkish bath, hot tub, salt steam bath and whirlpool. All with gorgeous views of the gardens that surround the hotel. If you’d rather get straight out and explore the town, the centre is just a 15-minute walk away along the Passer and Etsch riverside promenades.

Cuisine is an incredibly important part of Italian culture and the Adria embraces that wholeheartedly. You can expect things like home made buttery pastries for breakfast and if you upgrade to half board you'll have stunning five course South Tyrolean dinners at the five-star sister hotel Park Hotel Mignon, just down the road. 

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

Merano’s a spa town just a few miles south of the Austian boarder, so you get this lovely mix of Austro-Italian-Tyrolean culture and cuisine. The Passirio River flows through the centre of town and the promenades on either side are lined by beautiful buildings, with little cafés and restaurants tucked about the place. You couldn’t ask for better scenery – high in the Dolomite mountains, surrounded by vineyards and orchards, it feels idyllic. The Mediterranean climate and fertile soils produce fantastic wines too – so give the local DOC red wines a try while you’re here. There’s varied terrain for walkers and cyclists of all levels. We love the gentle routes along the flat irrigation channels of the Adige Valley that lead to spectacular cascades. The Venosta valley railway from Merano station is a another nice way to explore this beautiful valley; it’s all free with your 7 day Mobilcard, as are the buses and lifts. In between or after active days in the mountains take relaxing dip in the Merano Terme spa pools – it’s the perfect antidote to aching muscles.


St Moritz and the Bernina Express, full day Not to be missed! This full day excursion combines the internationally renowned Swiss resort of St Moritz with the stunning beauty of the Engadine Valley, best appreciated from the windows of the world famous mountain train, the Bernina Express. Please note this excursion runs from 01 Jun 20.

Please be advised this excursion can only run if minimum numbers are reached, bookable in resort only. Should this be an integral part of your desired experience, we would recommend Lake Como, a better location to enjoy this excursion.

The panoramic restaurant overlooks the gorgeous gardens. Simply decorated and with a distinct Italian design, this is the perfect spot for a hearty breakfast before a day of exploring the resort. Breakfast includes hot options like bacon, local sausages and eggs. Freshly brewed coffees, teas and delicious fruit juices are also available.

If you upgrade to half board you'll enjoy dinner at the five-star sister hotel, Park Hotel Mignon, just a 10 minute stroll down the road. Here you can enjoy a long and leisurely dinner - it's a wonderful culinary experience with a five-course menu which includes the best cuisine of the South Tyrol. The desserts are delicious so make sure you leave some room! 

A small bar serves a fantastic selection of local and specialist wines as well as popular Italian cocktails like the refreshing Hugo and of course the famous Aperol Spritz.
