The forest, mountain peaks, and the colourful sounds of the Alpine landscape characterise the attitude towards life in San Genesio/Jenesien. The cultural and provincial capital of Bolzano/Bozen is close by. An eight-minute cable car ride or a quick drive by car along the panoramic road is all it takes to find yourself amidst the colourful hustle and bustle of Bolzano/Bozen, where down to earth Alpine character meets the Mediterranean “Dolce Vita” of Italy. Enjoy a hearty breakfast and let the vibrant Italian spirit take you away. A prosecco with speck rolls, sweet moments of doing nothing, and historical buildings, endless strolls through narrow picturesque streets past shops run with loving dedication, and a feeling as though you’re walking through time. Bolzano/Bozen is many things – but above all, it is a city of joy and cultural diversity surrounded by medieval architecture and historical sites. The cuisine in Bolzano/Bozen is a culinary delight with seasonal specialities – chestnuts, young wine, speck, and wine from the local vineyards, which provide the setting for the city. Events such as the South Tyrol Jazz Festival, the Spring Festival, and of course the Bolzano/Bozen Christmas Market top off the charm of our provincial capital.
