The weather is pleasant and the view is wonderful, but we at SM Events have decided to make this trip even more magical by enriching it with a visit to the traditional Christmas Markets of Trentino-Alto Adige. From the end of November, the picturesque squares and streets of Bolzano, Brunico and Bressanone come alive with stalls and Christmas music, shine with lights and smell of gingerbread and mulled wine.
