Located on the sunny plateau of Monte Regolo in South Tyrol lies the municipality of Nova Ponente. From here, you can enjoy fantastic panoramic views of the surrounding meadows and forests and the nearby Dolomites. The comfortable Vitalpina Hotels in Nova Ponente are great places for an activity-packed holiday in the great outdoors at any time of the year. They make the ideal starting point for more or less challenging hikes in the surrounding mountains. Lying in a charming location, the small chapel of St Helena is certainly worth a visit, as is the famous “Pietralba”, a place of pilgrimage visited by Pope John Paul II in 1988. Numerous cosy mountain huts can be found scattered along the hiking route, offering delicious South Tyrolean specialities where you can happily while away many companionable hours. On your return to your hotel in Nova Ponente, you can then relax in the spa and sample the delicious dishes conjured up in the kitchen.
