***Hiking Base: Ortisei or Merano

Which would be a better base for a few days: Ortisei or Merano? We want to hike for a few hours each day and relax afterwards. Thanks very much DB.

Two quite different places.

Merano is a relatively large town while Ortisei is more like a large village.

I'd guess there's more walking from Ortisei (at least, more directly accesible walking) and has a nice little centre with shops and restaurants but Merano has its charms too - a beautiful botanical garden, a thermal spa, bigger and better shopping.

If you are intending to come later than September then definately Merano!
