What to see in Val di Sole
Val di Rabbi
Val di Rabbi is located within Val di Sole and certainly deserves a chapter of its own.
Within the valley, you can organise beautiful excursions in nature such as the one on the Tibetan suspension bridge or to the Saént waterfalls.
For fans of ancient trades, one can visit the Molino Ruatti, or the home of a family of millers, now converted into a museum.

The Vermiglio is a wonderful park, with free access, consisting of three small lakes and a beautiful children’s playground.
Inside the park, there is also a dirt path that goes around the lakes and is also passable with a pushchair.
The path is almost flat and is completed in about twenty minutes. Go to the article
Pelizzano and the Caprioli Lake
Pellizzano is a small village with a small historic centre and a large, wonderful children’s playground.
The main attraction located in its surroundings is the Lago dei Caprioli, a magical place where one can relax sunbathing on the meadows or eat a typical dish in the restaurant on the lakeshore.
It can be reached either by car or on foot, in the latter case walking along the Sentiero degli Gnomi (Gnome Path), a path characterised by wooden sculptures and suitable for children already accustomed to hiking.

What to do in Val di Sole: MMape
The Mill Bee Museum – MMape – is a special place to learn about the life of these pollinating insects and the daily challenges they face.
The visit is guided and lasts half an hour.
At the end, there is a short tasting of three different types of honey.
Near the MMape, there is also a nice picnic area. Go to the article
Val di Sole with children
Val di Pejo is a small valley in the heart of the Stelvio National Park, a side valley of Val di Sole.
There are many activities that can be enjoyed in the valley, both in summer and winter.
We went to Pejo Kinderland, a playground at high altitude (2000 metres).
The games are very nice and the view is enchanting.
You can get there on foot or by cable car from Pejo Fonti.
For lunch, we decided to try the dishes at the Malga Frattasecca, where we also found a small children’s playground, a nice lawn with deckchairs inviting relaxation, and lots of animals to cuddle such as goats, pigs and llamas. Go to article
Valbiolo Trail and Marmot Village
From Passo del Tonale, you can reach Malga Valbiolo at an altitude of 2244 metres by chairlift (from mid-June to mid-September) or by following the Sentiero Valbiolo.
The trek is suitable for the whole family and takes about an hour and a quarter.
On arrival at altitude, as well as refreshments at the restaurant, you will find the Marmot Village, a wonderful playground consisting of 5 play stations.
Lots of slides, long, adrenaline-filled slides, castles, and a water course.
The panorama is also wonderful! Go to article
