Appiano on the South Tyrolean wine route is nestling near Bolzano in South Tyrol’s sunny south between vineyards and apple orchards, forests and mountain ridges. The largest vine growing community in South Tyrol is also one of the regions in the Alps with the largest number of castles. Two lakes in picturesque locations tempt visitors to enjoy a refreshing swim surrounded by unspoilt nature. In Appiano nature, culture and pleasure combine to one exciting whole.
The hamlets of San Michele, Cornaiano, San Paolo, Missiano, Frangarto, Monticolo, Riva di Sotto, Predonico, Gaido and Monte make up the municipality of Appiano. Because of its location, history and local culture every one of these hamlets has its own charm and character.
