I would be staying at an apartment in Congolo, Peio, near the parco nazionale dello stelvio for a week in early Dec. Need to know some info regarding the area.
1. Am planning for day trips to Merano and the Dolomites. How feasible is that given that i plan to take public transport?
2. What other activities should i partake in to soak in the beauty of the area?
3. Another thing, how cold is the area in Dec? This is my first time experiencing winter as i'm from a tropical country - so what sort of clothes should i bring along?
4. Lastly, do i need to buy my own skiing jacket or boots? Or can I rent them from the resorts/ski school?
Thanks so much for your help! ;-)
