At the point where Val Passiria meets Val Venosta and Val d'Utimo sits the small town of Merano, Italy. In a basin surrounded by splendid mountains, Merano is 3000 m above sea level. The narrow slopes here get enough sun to grow red and white wine grapes, making for some delicious local wines and excellent downhill visibility. Enjoy your time getting around this beautiful and scenic town with the freedom of your own Merano car rental.
In the 1930s the town of Merano became popular as a health spa when "healing waters" were discovered here. Aside from its spa attraction, the town has been popular over the years with artists such as Franz Kafka and Ezra Pound, and by chess masters, who have chosen this location for the world championship matches.
Skiing here is not limited to just the early daytime hours, as Merano features two ski runs with illumination during the night. The ski runs run down to the bottom lift station in Falzeben, the lowest point of the ski area. A cable car is available to take skiers form the town of Merano to the center of the ski resort at Piffing, where children can join a Ski Kindergarten or take a ride on the rollercoaster Alpin Bob.
Merano 2000 is part of Ortler Skiarea, which includes 16 ski resorts around Alto-Adige.
