Day trip to Northern Italy Suggestions

Jump to last reply

I'm taking my family of four adults to Germany and Austria in mid to late September. Half way through our trip we will be in Innsbruck, Austria and I want to surprise my family and take them on a day trip to Italy for good cuisine and a short Italian experience. We will be traveling by car, so we are able to go pretty much wherever. I'm undecided if it will only be a day trip or actually drive to a city in Italy and stay one night before we head to our next destination, Salzburg. So, any recommendations?? I've looked into Bolzano, Merano, and Riva. They all look wonderful, but not sure which will be the best "Italian" experience for such a short time, and which place has excellent food. I know northern Italy's food isn't like southern Italy and has a lot of German influence, but I would really like to find a traditional Italian place to eat.

If we decide to stay a night, any suggestions of hotels or B&B??
