Train Scenery - Verona to Bolzano

We are thinking of taking a day's return train journey from Verona to Bolzano in September. Is there good scenery on the trip and also in Bolzano itself?

Yes, the scenery is nice (mountains, of course) and Bolzano is a pretty town and worth visiting for the day, it's a lot more like Austria than Italy and it has a nice centre.

I would say the train journey itself is pretty dull and monotonous. The lines follows the bottom of the Adige river valley all the way. The mountains you can see from the train are high and not particularly scenic. Bolzano itself is a pretty town. Don't forget to visit the local museum where the Iceman is kept -- http://www.iceman.it/

Thanks for both replies. Is the Adige river visible for most/all of the journey?

It is visible every inch of the way after you get out of Verona environs.

By the way, I think the route is beautiful -- river, vineyards, mountains in teh immediate background.

And do see Otzi -- best anthropological museum I've been in, even beyond Otzi himself.
