The first thing that you notice is the Germanic background. This was part of Austria until 1918. The first language is German with very little Italian. Lovely shops many of which are not part of national chains. The thermal baths are worth visiting.

It is the main artery of Merano that gives an inspiration to visit the place and explore the so many things it offers.
