The historic center of Bolzano is practically in the hands of the tourist trade: setting to one are restaurants, bars, pubs, cafes, followed by hotels and guest houses, so the retail - the best boutiques with the most prestigious brands are there. Feature of the center is the famous "tunnels", true pedestrian highways with three lanes - two side under the arches and a central short - that run parallel to each other by turning virtually around 2:00 to 3:00's main squares: Piazza Municipio, Piazza Walther and Piazza Erbe. Particular: the streets that intersect this triangle all assume the name from the ancient crafts that were performed here, the same houses (all with Austrian-style features hexagonal balconies at the corners), today almost all renovated and University offices, banks, insurance , prestigious boutiques, etc., were originally "house, warehouse and workshop" artisan.
Another curious detail, the communication system between the galleries and the main streets: it is steps "condominium" (in the sense that its revenue in the building!) Arranged perpendicularly between the two roads left open during the day by condominiums to allow its use to the public, only to be closed in the evening.

There's something for all tastes.

As urban piazza Walther and City Hall Square, with all major historical buildings around it, overlooking Piazza Walther in particular the cathedral, in a strange Gothic-Roman very special. Of course, architecturally nothing to do with the Gothic cathedral of Tromso, very impressive and second only to the cathedral in Paris, but that majolica typical of the Austrian Empire, it's really very nice. Not far from the cathedral is the church of the Dominicans, dating back to 1200 in its oldest part. It 's very curious sight inside, seem three churches in one, that surely the most beautiful part is the ancient burial vault, with beautiful frescoes on the walls and on the ceiling, in Romanesque style, is almost at odds with the Baroque and Rococo other parties. Behind the square herbs instead, approximately 15 minutes' walk from Piazza Walther, is the church of the Franciscans, in typical Romanesque plant, which is to be appreciated - as always in structures qust'ordine, the beautiful cloister that is next, with frescoes on the walls on one side, and on huge wooden pallets on the other. It 'a breathtaking panorama. All around Bolzano is full of castles and fortresses to reach one of these there is even a free minibus service which starts from Piazza Walther.
