Walking in the Dolomites
The Dolomites provide a dramatic backdrop of mountain peaks to the alpine meadows. Paths are well maintained, clearly marked with informative signposts, and free maps from the tourist offices.
The gondolas and lifts get you quickly up into the mountains. We often go at the end of June for the best of the alpine flowers, but be prepared for the occasional cold or wet day.
We have sometimes made our own arrangements to travel and hired a car from the airport (book in advance). On other trips we have found the combination of flight times, airport and onward travel made it more sense to travel with a tour operator.
