Marco Rossi

Ciao! I started traveling around Italy in 2017 and finally I moved here to live, because Italy is the epicenter of art, history and beauty. I will show you Italy from the most interesting sides, will share with you secrets and traditions of this country and will help make your trip unforgettable.

Merano is a city in the Italian province of Bolzano in the Trentino-Alto Adige region.

Merano is characterized by large parks and green paths, botanical gardens and numerous waterways. Permeated with a refined and welcoming atmosphere, the historic center captivates visitors with its medieval arcades and elegant Art Nouveau buildings.

Merano resembles a tropical park, carefully sheltered from the winds and cold by the Tessa mountain range.

Lovely hotel. Breakfast is very good with everything and delicious coffee! The location is great, in the middle of the vineyards. The view when you are in the pool is phenomenal. Very good base for walking and the center. If you don't feel like going to the center on foot, there are free bikes. If you book (Junior Suite) you will have a lovely terrace. Very friendly people. We are fans!

Amelia Lee

Crystalina, I returned from an 11-day trip in northern Italy after having the kind help of you to plan and build the itinerary. Happily, your recommendations were incredibly accurate and detailed, including parking, recommendations for restaurants and even leading ice cream parlors. We arrived at magical places, don't want to think what would have happened without your planning?! Thank you very much, Crystalina.

Anthony Long

We decided to fly and opened up to Crystalina 10 days before the flight. Crystalina found out exactly what we wanted and built us an incredibly accurate trip. She found accommodations that just suited us, and attractions that just suited us. And in the process we had one problem, Crystalina immediately mobilized, made phone calls and solved the problem for us from the country. For everything we received an exact link and a map, including opening hours. Thanks to Crystalina, we had a calm and flowing trip. Thank you so much, Crystalina!

Chloe Collins

We purchased a travel itinerary for Tuscany from Crystalina, and it exceeded our expectations. The itinerary was well-planned and accurate, allowing us to have the perfect trip we envisioned. Additionally, Crystalina provided us with an excellent quote for car rental, and we were able to rent a car from Sixt at a much cheaper price compared to other competitors, saving us approximately $200. Highly recommended.
