Italy for Art Lovers

Art lovers adore our guided Italian Dolomites Trek. We begin our traverse of northern Italy by luxuriating in a property that boasts more than 2000 oil paintings, watercolors and lithographs by artists such as Paul Klee, Joseph Beuys, Oskar Kokoschka, Otto Dix, Giorgio de Chirico, and Renato Guttuso. In an effort to encourage yet unknown artists and talents, the hotel also invites one new artist each month to show their works.

The entire collection resides in a distinguished sudtyrolean castle with a history that spans 700 years. Fourteenth century walls immure immaculately detailed suites with every modern amenity. Add winding passageways, candlelight dinners, and a wine cellar tucked into caves beneath the historic towers, and the experience seems like something plucked out of a fairy tale.

The hotel’s motto, “Only the best is good enough,” offers a small hint of what’s in store. If you love art, then you’ll love the first two night’s of this tour. You might even be tempted to skip the hike and spend your day wandering the gallery while immersed in stylish elegance. We don’t recommend it.
