How about a visit to the spa town of Meran?
In Meran, South Tyrol’s Mediterranean gem, Alpine tradition and southern temperament come together, and green palm trees are just as characteristic as glistening white mountain peaks.

On the contrary, the garden and spa town with its famous Terme Merano/Therme Meran, Kurhaus, romantic old town with shops, bars, and restaurants, picturesque promenades, and wonderful cultural programme is a crowd puller that is worth the trip.
