Merano Centro Storico is known for its cozy Christmas markets that fill the area with the smell of mulled wine. The cobble-stoned streets of this year-round spot date back to Roman times. Today, you'll find shops, a spa with a pool, and a promenade along the Passer river. The town's mixed Italian and German heritage inspire the menus of several restaurants.

    August 2016. The historic centre of Merano is characterized above all by the long Via dei Portici and the parish church of Saint Nicholas. Via dei Portici connects the parish with Square Piazza del Grano, the latter was once the marketplace. The facades along the arcades feature the distinctive Bay Windows or Bay Windows (typical Tyrolean window). It is said that the arcades of Merano are the longest of the entire Tyrol and South Tyrol. Then there are the three gates. Originally these were 4, but a, Door Ultner no longer exists. Those that remain are: door, door and door Bolzano who pitched roof very and the arms of Austria is certainly the most beautiful of 3 gates.
