Elephant

Via Rio Bianco 4, Bressanone, Trentino-Alto Adige, 39042, Italy

At this cozy inn, 450 years old and still one of the region's best, each room is unique and many are filled with antiques and paintings. The name comes from the 1551 visit of King John III of Portugal, who stopped here while leading an elephant (a present for Austria's Emperor Ferdinand) over the Alps. Housed in the large park are a pool, tennis gardens, and the separate Villa Marzari, with 14 rooms. A rustic three-room stube serves tasty fare.
