Stay in the charming and centrally located mountain village of San Cassiano in a historic luxury hotel that incorporates that offers the best in local style and cuisine. During flexible private touring, learn about the compelling World War I history of the region at an open-air exhibition of trenches and military shelters built among the Cinque Torri stone towers. Also take the cable car up to Rifugio Lagazuoi for truly spectacular 360-degree panoramas of the Dolomites. Another day, enjoy a scenic drive to villages such as Ortisei in nearby Val Gardena, and ride lifts high into the hills for hiking in the strikingly dramatic areas of Puez-Odle Natural Park or Alpe di Siusi and Sassolungo.

Next, visit the historic city of Bolzano to tour the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology and see the fascinating exhibition dedicated to Otzi, a 5,000-year-old mummy found buried in the ice in the nearby mountains. Also visit a winery to sample wines made from Lagrein, Vernatsch and other local varietals grown on the steep hillsides and in the narrow valleys of the region.
