Bolzano/Bozen Italy

We stopped Monday for the night in this Tyrol city, to visit the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology and the 5000-year-old corpse that was found in the Alps in 1991. I stayed at a hotel in town, the Slaves found a cheaper one just across the river. All public signs are bilingual here, as Tyrol was always part of the Austro-Hungarian empire, till The Allies gave it to Italy during WW I in exchange for joining the war on their side.

Before leaving town Tuesday morning, we visited the museum, and checked out an old castle (Castel Roncolo / Schloß Runkelstein) just up the road.
