View of the Dolomites

After taking you to discover (or rediscover) the peaks of Patagonia, here we are in Italy, in the Dolomites, for equally breathtaking landscapes.

The Dolomites are located in northern Italy, in a part of the Alps that belonged to the Austro-Hungarian Empire until the end of the First World War, and German is widely spoken in Südtirol.

This small massif has a geology of its own and the peaks, very mineral, are absolutely magnificent, The region is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and rightly so. Unfortunately, the massif is a victim of its own success and there are many, many people …

I invite you to visit three very characteristic parts of this massif, Drei Zinnen, Passo Falzarego and Puez Geisler.

Drei Zinnen, with its three very recognisable peaks. This is a purely mineral landscape.

Puez Geisler: a route often used by the Giro winds between the peaks passing through famous passes: Passo sella, Passo Gardena, Passo Pordoi.

PassoPasso Falzarego: another route taken by the Giro, the ideal way to appreciate the raw beauty of this landscape is to take a funicular and arrive directly inside the massif (here Lagazuoi). The view is incredible and very far reaching.

Fabulous scenery and worth several visits.
