Bolzano, Italy (3) – A Trip to Oberbozen (Day 12)

On the first morning of our visit to Bolzano, we took a walk along Talvera creek that runs north/south.  We came across a gorgeous view of the hillside on the edge of the city.  We were determined to make the climb a challenge after our lunch.  With some research, we found a cable car (Rittner Seibahn) that departs from the nearby main train station.  However, what we thought was a short ride to the top of the hill, actually was a 12 minute ride deep into the hills to a village called Oberbozen.  We took a leisurely stroll through this delightful village.  On our way down, we see the many vineyards that is a common local product.

We were determine to get to the top of that hill.

Reaching Oberbozen, we can see the dolomites in the distance.  There is a train from Oberbozen that can take you closer to these natural wonders.
