The spa town of Merano
After the predominantly Italian Bolzano, Merano is the second biggest town in South Tyrol and is heavily influenced by the German-speaking majority. The spa town is wonderfully located in the middle of an awe-inspiring mountain region. The year-round mild climate with over 300 days of sunshine attracts visitors from all over the world - not just hikers and skiers but also admirers of the remarkable old town.
In the town centre of Merano many traditional shops and modern chains are hidden amongst the medieval arcades providing visitors with a unique shopping experience.
