Alpe di Siusi, Italy

Alpe di Siusi or Seiser Alm as it’s also known is an alpine meadow situated on a plateau high above the villages of Siusi, Castelrotto and Ortisei in the Italian Dolomites. Less than two miles apart from one another, Castelrotto and Siusi are attractive villages dating from medieval times. Much history surrounds these outposts of the Sud Tirol, a region that was once part of the Austro Hungarian Empire but now belongs to Italy. As a result both villages have a German and Italian name. Castelrotto is also Kastelruth the former being it’s Italian name and the latter it’s German name. To add to the confusion the primary language spoken here, bizarrely enough is neither Italian nor German. It’s Ladin, an ancient romance language. But don’t worry because many locals speak two or more languages so finding a common one may not be that difficult.

Alpe di Siusi is considered to be one of the Dolomites most prominent natural features. It is a haven for nature lovers and outdoor sports enthusiasts in both summer and winter. From June to July it is resplendent with the colours of many varieties of alpine flower and between December and April it is simply snow white with maybe a tinge of pink reflected from the cliffs of the Sciliar a massive lump of limestone that overlooks the plateau.
