Lana has beauty, history, great food, wines and wondrous nature - located at the heart of the Val d’Adige | Etschtal Valley in South Tyrol Italy, the market town Lana sits between Bolzano and wonderful nearby Merano. Lana is famed for its some 40 churches, monasteries, convents and chapels that you need to see. Also, Lana is home to a fab wine region, the oldest apple plantations, fairytale castles and cute-as-pie leaning buildings that hang over the twisted medieval streets.

With the backdrop of those gorgeous Dolomites, nature lovers flock to this part of South Tyrol with Monte San Vigilio | Mount Vigiljoch towering above, great for both summer and winter activities, chilling in the meadows of Alto Adige, soaking up the clean air and of course for eating - this is after all, the region of seriously good food from the farm-to-table simplicity through to the Michelin gourmets.
