"Tell me... where is exactly South Tyrol?"
"Tell me... where is exactly South Tyrol?" is a question I often hear from people around the world. Do you also wonder about it?
Let's discover together how getting here!
South Tyrol is very peculiar Italian province nestling among the Alps, facing Austria to the north and east, Switzerland to the west and rest of Italy to the south side. With the twin-province of Trentino we form a district and inhabit a spectacular alpine environment.
How to reach South Tyrol
You can reach our province by train, since the Brenner railway is a European mainline, or by bus/car along the A22 motorway.
The closest airports are Innsbruck and Verona, but main international hubs are Milano, Munich, Bologna or Venezia. The local administration is at the moment enforcing Bolzano/Bozen Airport, in order to connect us to the main Italian airports. I hope I will have good news soon!
Would you like to have an idea on how far Bolzano is? Here some examples:
From Verona: 150 km
From Milan: 267 km
From Munich: 280 km
From Venice: 270 km
Form Florence: 370 km
From Rome: 640 km
