Alpe di Siusi

Alpe di Siusi was easy to get to from Castelrotto and there were lots of hiking options even if you didn't want to climb mountains. Beautiful scenery too, even from down low.

Taking the shuttle and gondola to Alpe di Siusi was easy. The shuttle leaves from the bus station and drops you right at the gondola station after stops in other villages. 

We walked trail #30 — one of the easy trails — but missed the start by the chapel because there are no signs facing that direction. We caught it later up the road. Even on this easy trail the scenery was beautiful.

There was a charming cabin along the trail with a subtle water feature. 

It took us 2.5 hours to get just short of Satria, which is where the trail got less scenic anyway. 

This isn’t a wilderness area. There are some places to stay dotted around, and sheep and cows. There are also ski lifts that take you to higher trails without having to climb all the way up. Just a beautiful and relaxing day out.
