A car rental in Bressanone, Italy is an excellent way to explore the popular South Tyrol province of Italy before continuing on to either Austria or Germany as part of your European road trip. Bressanone is one hour by car from Bolzano and stands as the third largest and oldest city in the province, as well as the artistic and cultural capital of South Tyrol. Historically, Bressanone was a part of the Austria, and was known by its German name of Brixner for a period of time as well. It was not until the end of World War I that Bressanone officially was annexed by Italy, and due to its historical link to Austria, the city maintains a German-speaking majority.
Before venturing on to the many sites found outside the limits of Bressanone, there are several stops one should make within the city. Several historic churches and cathedrals stand within the city, dating back to the 10th century, but the most intriguing site in Bressanone is without a doubt the Pharmacy Museum. The museum features an active pharmacy which has been run by the same family since 1787, and various historic remedies are on display such as Egyptian mummies, lyophilisates, and obscure animal glands. Bressanone's connection to the German-speaking world also means the pastry culture here is superb - while in town you simply must try the local apple strudel!
