After an uncomfortable night in an overpriced room at Il Cappello di Ferro in Bolzano, Italy, we decided to change rooms and walked one block down the road to Il Battente 1862, and I am so happy that we did. We had some trouble finding our new B&B as it was unmarked, but after asking for the location of Il Battente 1862 next door at the pizza restaurant, we accessed the apartment with ease.

We were greeted by Elsa who, despite not speaking English, was a joy to encounter. She was all smiles and enthusiasm, and offered us a cappuccino upon arrival.

She brought us to our room, and it was cozy as could be! A double bed with a comfortable mattress and ample blankets, a desk and a bookshelf, a closet, and a perfectly decorated bathroom were exactly what we needed after our smoke-laden room with rock hard beds at Il Cappello di Ferro the night before.

We had spent the day hiking the Adolf Munkel Trail in the Dolomites, blown away by the natural beauty of that mountain chain, and were exhausted. Il Battente 1862 was just what we needed.

We didn’t want to wander far from our room for dinner, so we decided to grab pizza next door, and it was both delicious and reasonably priced! I had a large vegetable pizza for 8 euro, and they didn’t skimp on the veggies either!

We passed out instantly on the overly comfortable mattresses at Il Battente 1862 and woke up to find an incredible breakfast spread waiting for us in their beautiful living room. There was way too much food for just the two of us, but we did our best to make the biggest dent possible. Breakfast consisted of: breads, donuts, jams, chocolates, meats, yogurts, fruits, fresh squeezed juices, and a cappuccino.

Absolutely stuffed, we hopped into our car and began our drive south toward Verona and our suite at Corte Realdi. It's safe to say that Il Battente 1862 will forever be one of my very favorite Bed & Breakfasts.
