Bolzano in the Italian Alps

There isn't much open since it's Sunday and a three day holiday but we did go to the Museum Archeologich de Sudtriol to see the special (temporary) exhibition on the Iceman.

He was found in the Alps close to here (Bolzano or Bozen, depending on your language). The Iceman is 5000 years old and called an Otzi!

Everyone speaks either Italian or German here. We are very close to Austria. Tomorrow we are heading the long way around to Venice so we can see the mountains a little more.
