The Dolomite Alps in Northern Italy differ from the rest of the Alps. These limestone giants offer an array of landscapes from elegant spires to sheer walls to giant peaks. The contrast of limestone with alpenrose, fields of wild flowers and evergreen forests makes one want to break out in a verse of “The Hills are Alive”!
Add incredible hospitality and scenic mountain hotels to the environment and it’s the best of all worlds. On the northern side comes the Tyrolean/Austrian influences. German is spoken here. Travel a few miles south and all transforms to Italian.
The wartime tunnels add an entirely different dimension to this mysterious region. Located strategically between Austria and Italy, the Dolomite Alps have been tunneled into and via ferrata (iron cables set into the walking cliffs) are found throughout.
Plan your next hiking/cultural trip to this stunning corner of the Alps!
