Bolzano (or Bozen) is a city in the Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol region in northern Italy. The city has almost 100,000 inhabitants.
Bolzano has got an Italian-Austrian character, enhanced by the narrow cobblestone streets, Habsburg-era churches and pervasive bilingual signage. This unique flavour of a city at crossroads between Italian and Austrian cultures as well as its natural and cultural attractions make it a renowned tourist destination.
Furthermore, the famous ice-mummy "Ötzi" is kept in the local South Tyrol Museum of Archeology.
