Anyone been to the Italian Alps?

I've previously done the Bavarian Alps & am off to Austria in May.

I'm looking to go to italy October time, mainly hiking, but want to be based in a town with a bit of life, with easy access to the maountains.

Probably looking to stay in an apartment with 2 bedrooms.

Any info on where to hike/stay etc gratefully received.
Val Gardena and the Alpe de suisse are interesting hiking country, though I can't really speak as to the town life.
