The town we stayed in has 2 names: Niederdorf and Villabassa, population 1600. The region is known as South Tyrol. 92% of the population speaks German and 7% speaks Italian. Less than 1 percent of the population speaks Ladin. I am fascinated by linguistics and I had never heard of this one before. Here are some pictures from around the cute little town of Niederdorf/ Villabassa. It looks very Austrian right?
The cemetery was so well kept
Could not find a single piece of trash on the streets here
The homes have the most beautiful gardens and the bees are thriving here
My home for the week- the Hotel Gasthaus Adler. I will miss their beautiful pool, and their handsome waiters.
The perfect place for a drink after a day of hiking in the beautiful mountains
