Gayle and I arrived and left Bolzano/Bozen on the way too and from Castelrotto/Kastenruth. It's the charming capital city of the South Tyrol.
Gorgeous city. Noootttt so nice people. Bolzano is filled with classic-European narrow and windy cobblestone streets. And when I visited, it was gorgeously decorated with Christmas lights and huge bulbs and trees everywhere. However, after looking around, we got hungry and asked people where to eat. We must have asked about 20 people and either no one wanted to talk to us, could talk to us, or point us in the right direction. When we finally found a restaurant, we didn't feel very welcome and were rushed out quickly. I hear Bressanone, which is 20 minutes north, is even more beautiful, and the people and nightlife are supposed to be great. I would definitely skip over Bolzano and hit up Bressanone if you have the chance instead!
Very beautiful small town. The residents speak both Italian and German. Lots of natural beauty. The town and the people are very green. There are lots of trees and parks and everyone rides bicycles. You can catch a but to the Dolomite Mountains and go hiking through what looks like the set of "The Sound of Music" and you can ski those mountains in the winter. The only bad part was that the town in small. You don't find all of the great shopping and restaurants you would find elsewhere in Italy.
