Holidays in Val Venosta
Val Venosta - South Tyrol’s cultural region Val Venosta forms the upper part of the Val d’Adige in South Tyrol. Stretching from the Passo di Resia to Parcines near Merano, Val Venosta derives its name from the Celtic tribe of the Venosta, who once settled there. Thanks to its special location, Val Venosta also has a unique climate with little rainfall and plenty of sunshine. The 3,000 m-high mountain ridges of the Alps surrounding Val Venosta protect the region from the weather coming from the north and the south, creating insular climate conditions. Val Venosta has less rain than Sicily, for instance. The cultural region of South Tyrol can also hold its own with the Mediterranean island when it comes to the number of days of sunshine. So you can be sure there will be plenty of sunshine during your stay at the Dolce Vita hotels in Val Venosta.
