Built among the mountains, Old Town serves as a huge archaeological site for very old salt mines, some of which are active to this day. Descend underground to see the salt lake and pay a visit to the prehistoric mummy of a miner frozen in salt. The village glows with baroque ornaments on colorful buildings--it sits alongside the lake and is ripe with cafes and restaurants.

  • We did this with winter snow. I took a thousand photos. It is simply idyllic. Walk the upper and lower roads…make sure you go to the Church on the high road…and do the sky walk.
