Photos To Inspire You To Visit Alpe Di Siusi, Italy – Estimated reading time: 5 minutes
The more I get to know Italy, the more I fall in love. It’s the first European country I visited and well, it stole my heart. I’ve visited Italy so many times that I lost count of how many times I’ve been there. Over the years, I’ve spent time hiking in Cinque Terre, taking in sights around Rome, hanging out at the opera in Milan, getting to know small towns like Otranto, and so much more.
There hasn’t been a single trip I’ve taken to Italy where I didn’t have fun, find myself stunned by the picture perfect beauty, or marvelling at the ever delicious Italian cuisine. And when I travelled to Alpe Di Siusi (Seiser Alm), I was reminded again why I love Italy so much.
Photos To Inspire You To Visit Alpe Di Siusi, Italy
The Italian Alps, the Dolomites are home to Europe’s largest alpine meadow. Spreading approximately 5 km’s by 12 km’s, the meadow is flanked by jagged limestone mountain peaks that grandly rise 2000 meters above sea level.
It’s a quiet area with few cars or hints of modern day life. You’ll find plenty of grazing sheep and cows and will often be treated to the distinctive sound of ringing bells. Then there’s the trails full of energetic hikers (who may or not be able to belt out a mean yodel), big endless skies, and quaint mountain huts. You’ll feel more like you’re in Germany than Italy.
Shortly after my arrival in Alpe di Siusi, our group of travel blogging friends embarked on the first of many hikes. This was when my love affair began for the area really deepened.
Other things to do in Alpe di Siusi include paragliding, taking outdoor cooking classes, meeting Italy’s first coffee sommelier, eating lunch at a farmhouse, and tasting Snappes (trust me, not for the weak).
This video about Alpe di Siusi highlights our group’s overall experience and the fun that you can have for yourself. If you want to get out of Alpe di Siusi, get yourself there soon.

All the best from Montréal,
@Christoph – Thanks so much! No problem .. really loved your video. Also, hope you’re enjoying my home country. 🙂
Beautiful photos Cheryl. I know what you mean about falling in love with Italy. It’s so beautiful and one of the countries I enjoyed the most. Hopefully you can settle down there one day 🙂
@Shamis – Thanks! I hope I can settle down there too. Somewhere close to water would be nice …
And so glad you enjoyed Italy too. 🙂
That looks great! I have to put the Dolomites on the must-do list, really.
@Michael – It’s simply stunning there. In general, the hikes aren’t too hard either which was good for me being so out of shape! 😀
This is beautiful! I’m half-Italian and thus ashamed that I’ve spent so little time in Italy – haven’t been back aside from the airport in 14 years!
oops – actually forgot a weekend trip to Ventimiglia in 2005 to visit friends but I really don’t feel that counts.
@Andrea – You definitely need to go back! A perfect romantic getaway for you and John. 🙂
The photo with the hut is amazing. I live Italy to, we spent our summer there travelling round. I would love to visit here and also the very south of Spain. Great photos.
@Adela – Thank you so much. If you ever get the chance to visit, I highly recommend Alpe Di Siusi. =)
Great photos, brings back such great memories. Alpe di Suisi is definitely a place I could keep coming back to! Thanks for the mention.
@Laurel – No problem! It was fun to hang out with you on another blog trip. And I really miss that view ….
Gorgeous photos, you know when I think of Italy I never think of the Alps which is a bit silly.
@Ayngelina – I don’t either but here you have -yet another- region of the country.
Great…make that fantastic set of photos. I hiked the Tour du Mont Blanc last year & was very impressed with Italian mountain scenery.
This is a part of Italy that I’m yet to explore, and after seeing your photos I really want to get there more than ever. Just beautiful!
@Leigh – Thanks! The Alps are simply stunning. 🙂
@Dean – You must definitely go there! 😉
