Ten distinct wine villages and hamlets, over 180 forts, castles and stately residences as well as a 1,200 hectare wine-growing region form the framework for a spectacular holiday in Appiano. The decorative, hillside villages of San Michele/St. Michael, Cornaiano/Girlan, San Paolo/St. Pauls, Frangarto/Frangart, Missiano/Missian, Riva di Sotto/Unterrain, Predonico/Perdonig, Gaido/Gaid, Monte/Berg and Monticolo/Montiggl are situated slightly above the valley in the Überetsch hills along the South Tyrolean Wine Road. They are characterised by a pleasant climate and numerous hours of sunshine. Looking to cool off? Head over to the Montiggl nature conservation area featuring two unique lakes to swim across or walk around. Hikers visiting the region will appreciate the outstanding 400-km network of marked trails.
