I took a train from the city of Verona to Bolzano located in the northeastern part of Italy in the Italian alps. Bolzano serves as the gateway to the Italian alps or the South Tyrol region. From here there are frequent buses and trains to different regions of South Tyrol also known by its Italian name as Alto Adige. One of my first stops was the town of Brixen from where I took a bus ride to the idyllic and surreal village of Santa Magdalena. As soon as you enter the village you will be in awe with the magnificent scenery and the majestic Dolomites overlooking this pretty little village. This view hits you right in the face. I walked around and explored the village until I found the perfect spot to watch the sunset as the light reflects over the peaks making it one of the most spectacular views.
