Hotel Salgart has one of the most idyllic locations in Merano. It’s on the outskirts of the town, surrounded by vineyards and orchards with views over the stunning Etch Valley. The centre of Merano's just a 20-minute walk away or you can use the local buses that stop around a five-minute walk away from the hotel.

This is a family-run hotel where they make every guest feel at home. The rooms have been renovated in a modern style with balconies either facing the rear of the hotel, where you can enjoy the peace and quiet, or over the pool, where you can take advantage of the sun. We love the hotels outdoor pool, it's the best place to relax and cool off after a day discovering the local walks. The new dining room has panoramic views and they use fresh produce in their South Tyrolean and Italian dishes.

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

Merano is a favoured 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 visiting the incredible Trauttmansdorff Castle botanical gardens, which you can walk to from town on the famous Sissi's Path.

Thermal spa therapy

Merano is known 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.

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.

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.
