The other week my beau needed to travel to Bolzano/ Bozen on a business trip, and seeing the fact that it was for the weekend I tagged along, we left our home early Friday morning and we arrived in time for a late dinner (so yeah it took some time to arrive). My beau was occupied with his work shenanigans all Saturday (SAY WHAT WORK ON A SATURDAY!!), which left me a lot of time to actually explore the city and just do whatever I wanted to do. Knowing next to nothing about this town expectations wasn’t really high, but I was surprised, it’s a very quaint and charming little town. The city center is about the size of Union Square Park.
And here is something I caught up exploring it on my own;
– Bozen/Bolzano is the capital of the Alta Pusteria valley in the South Tyrol located on the border of Austria and Italy, ergo the double name. They speak two languages due to the fat that until 1918 it was part of the Austro- Hungarian country.
– It’s the home of Ötzi, the 5000-year-old tattooed mummy. Who was murdered some 5000 years ago.
– Bolzano/ Bozen is a very vivid and lively town with market booths along the high street, where they during the day sell fresh fruit and veg (locally grown) and by night they turn into bars where they sell jelly shots and drinks in plastic cups, and people young as old, all socialize on the same street!
I apologize on beforehand that the pictures are of somewhat bad quality. I had no time to edit them and I didn’t bring the good camera.
