Visiting just one town or city, regardless of its popularity, will only ever provide you with a limited view into the broader rhythms and life-ways of a region. So try to allow a few days to enjoy Italy's other attractions. Brunico, is 12 miles (19 kilometers) to the east. Take the trip there to see the Brunico Castles and Kronplatz Ski Area.
About 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the south of Villabassa is Belluno, a regional center which is home to Church of San Rocco, Palazzo dei Rettori and Piazza del Duomo. Fontana di San Gioata and Cathedral of Belluno are just a few of the other interesting attractions in Belluno.
This region is popular for its range of historic mansions; these are fascinating reminders of the region's rich past. When the weather is fine, why not hit the road and explore Italy's open-air markets, lighthouses and open-air museums?.
If you love to get out into the cold, this area may be the ideal destination. Do as the locals do and go snowboarding and skiing. Why not combine education and relaxation during your stay by joining a group of like-minded travelers on one of Villabassa's fascinating cycling tours, winery tours and segway tours.
Before you return to the familiarity of home, you'll be bidding Villabassa a fond and teary Ciao (farewell).
