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.
