South Tyrol – as it really tastes!
One of the reasons for coming on holiday to South Tyrol is typical South Tyrolean cuisine.
It's all about genuine, traditional farm cooking that has found a place onto menus at award-winning restaurants, including dishes with the Mediterranean touch that bring a breath of fresh air to tried-and-tested traditional recipes, too!

So you can get to know South Tyrol through your stomach! ;-)
