Hotel Adria brings an Art Nouveau building into a new era with its perfect blend of classic interiors and modern comforts. Think parquet floors, and vintage furniture. The attention to detail is incredible and it’s instantly a place where you feel at home.

Wonderful spa facilities

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. The spa area has views of the gardens that surround the hotel. The Mediterranean sauna is amazing and has the most peaceful, calming atmosphere. We could spend all day switching from spa room to spa room.

Best breakfast in Merano

Food's an incredibly important part of Italian culture and the Adria embraces that whole-heartedly. The breakfast here is out of this world, with slabs of honey comb and bottles of prosecco, they really spoil you! Expect home-made pastries for breakfast and if you upgrade to half board you'll have gourmet five course dinners at the five-star sister hotel Park Hotel Mignon, just down the road.

Great for walkers

If you’d rather get straight out and explore the town, the centre's just a 15-minute downhill walk away. You'll definitely get your steps in walking back up to the hotel after your day in town! The hotel's ideal for keen walkers and ideal if you're looking for a combination of exploring on foot and discovering the local culture.

24/7 support & tailored advice from our local resort team


Merano is a favoured Italian summer holiday destination and a culturally rich town known for its radon springs and spas. Sitting in a beautiful South Tyrolean basin surrounded by mountains, it has medieval arcades, castles and churches dating back to the 12th century. In summer the mountains come alive with colourful wildflowers, crystal-clear streams and verdant vineyards and forests. Whether you're walking or just relaxing in one of the town’s many parks or its botanical gardens, the views are breath-taking.

Luxury in Merano: a royal flush

Once visited by Austrian royals, Merano became a popular summer retreat among the European bourgeoisie in the 19th century, and has beautiful hotels and architecture to show for it. Today you can follow in the footsteps of the 19th century elite by walking in the foothills, lazing in the many spas and exploring the incredible Trauttmansdorff Castle botanical gardens, which you can walk to from town on the famous Sissi's Path.

A relaxing retreat: thermal spa therapy

Merano is famous throughout Italy for its natural hot springs, and there are several thermal spas in the area where you can relax and rejuvenate in the healing waters. Some of the most popular spots include the Terme Merano (the Merano Thermal Baths) and the AquaForum. Summer holidays have never been so regenerating!

Sightseeing in Merano: centuries of culture (and wine)

Merano has a rich cultural heritage, with several museums, galleries and historic buildings to explore. The town is particularly well known for its Art Nouveau architecture, which can be seen in buildings like the Kurhaus and Villa Tivoli. If you visit the Castel Rametz, you can explore the ancient wine cellar, said to be the first place to produce wine in the Alps, going all the way back to Roman times. The wine tastings here are fantastic, and you'll also have the chance to try some of the local cured meats with your wine, it's the best way to get a taste of Merano.

Tyrolean treats: tuck into Merano's local food

The food might be the best thing of all in Italy’s South Tyrol and a highlight of your summer holiday. Blending Austrian, Italian and Mediterranean influences, traditional Tyrolean dishes include speck (smoked ham), knödel (dumplings) and kaiserschmarrn (shredded pancake) alongside the classic Italian favourites. Wash it all down with a glass of wine from a local vineyard.
