Bozen is the provincial capital city of Alto Adige/South Tyrol; it is a German-speaking region and bilingual. Boen is one of the top-ranked towns in Italy if you think of quality of life and was elected best Italian city in 2017. Since it opened in 1998, the South Tyrol Museum of Archeology in Bolzano attracted more than 4.4 million visitors who came to see the mummy of Ötzi. Worldwide known as Ice-Man or Frozen Fritz, he was found in 1991 along the Italian-Austrian border, 60 kilometers from Bolzano. Ötzi is one of the oldest mummies in the world and represents a rich source of information about life during prehistoric times. At the museum is possible to see his well-preserved body and the artefacts found close to him.

One can visit the historical centre of Trento at own pace in the morning. The nearby modern town district “Le Albere”, hosts the Science Museum (MUSE); it has been awarded an honourable mention at the European Museum of the Year Awards 2015 and is well worth a visit too, just like the Castello del Buon Consiglio in the old town.
