Hi - My partner booked a vacation in Hotel Le Blanc, Vason (near Trento). We will have car to drive around for a week. Please share with us any recommendations for all the best places (or should we say - the most beautiful places...) around. We heard about Lago di Tovel. We know there are many other beautiful places. We only know Val Gardena area. Heard about Parco naturale di Adamello-Brenta. what are the "must see" places in it? Any recommendations for day trips (by car) or for day hikes (preferably those that combine uphill cable-car/lift and walk on top of the mountain or downhill...)are most welcome! Thanks, Ana.
Is it possible catch a bus that has the word scholastic on the timetable. I need to go from croce d`aune to Feltre 15.15 in September. Is this just a school bus for children or can the general public use this service. Thank you
I'll be staying in Toblach/Dobbiaco for 3 days and four nights at the end of May and would like to explore some of the Dolomite region to do some moderate hiking (possibly stay over night in a mountain hut) and see Lago de Braies. First of can anybody give me an idea of what the weather will be like at that time in the mountains? I imagine snow is still possible so I would need warm clothing to hike and walk? Second, for hiking: I am not experienced but am in good shape and relatively young, so looking for moderate to moderately strenuous hikes-nothing too difficult or life threating. I've heard of some vie ferrata hikes which sound really fun and a good combination of light danger/excitement and safety-do you need equipment for these or can I just find one and go to it? As for locations I am looking at hiking to Tre Crime/Drei Zinnen and/or locations around Cortina (any recommendations?). I might be interested in staying in a mountain hut, but am not sure how reservations work or if I even need them, or can walk in and crash, etc. Could someone fill me in on how all of that works--I was hoping I can just go on my hike and crash at a mountain hut if I want to, but maybe that isn't how people do it? Also, Can anyone recommend a good hike route (where to start and go etc.) to Tre Crime coming from Dobbiaco/Toblach? Is there public transport I can take to cut down on some of the walking to get there? I will not have a car and am relying solely on public transport to get me back and forth to areas, so I am wondering what that will be like in late May--I imagine my options will be limited since Summer season hasn't kicked in? Are there any cable cars/buses I will be able to take to summits to get up to into the sky quickly, or do you think I'll have to walk to everything during that time? Lastly, I will be by myself. Should I be concerned about wildlife or other safety hazards while on hikes in the Dolomites (besides the obvious ones...like I said I don't plan on taking any strenuous or dangerous hikes on my own)? Thanks.
We will be in Bolzano for 4 days in early June and plan a day trip to Val Gardena – only the following cable cars are working in early June: • Col Raiser (St Christina) • Rasciesa – Raschötz (Ortisei) • Alpe di Siusi-Seiser Alm(Ortisei) Which of this offer most scenic views of the Sella Group and Sassulongo? I understand that all cable cars in Selva will be closed till late June. Is there any particular place in Selva which will offer good views of the above mountains?
We are planning a visit to the area in mid-May of next year. Kastelruth (Castelrotto) appears to be a good place to stay and venture out for day trips. Our main concerns are what the weather will be like at that time of year, will there be a good selection of restaurants open to eat in, will the cable lifts be running for accessing higher areas to hike, and will wildflowers be starting to bloom in the lower elevations. We will be traveling by car. Any planning assistance will be appreciated.
Hi VT's I need an advice.All of sudden I couldn't hiking, nonetheless I have decided going to my favorites destination this week. What to do nearby Passo Tonale.Is there any public transport towards, for example, Werona or other nice town? Thanks for a help.
Where in the Dolomites may we do some summer skiing? How do I get there and where is a suitable town to stay if I want to ski for 4 days? We hope to get a self-catering apartment in a town with a good supermarket. Thanks!
Can anyone tell me how to get from Rome to Dobbiaco (Toblach) in the Dolomites? I am trying to go there to visit the Parco Naturale Faies-Sennes-Braies and the Lago di Braies (Pragser Wildsee). I had assumed I would take a train from Rome to Bolzano, and then Bolzano to Dobbiaco, but I can't find any Bolzano-Dobbiaco trains. I checked the Dobbiaco tourism website, but I found it confusing. Any recommendations would be extremely appreciated! Thank you, Appia
Hello! I am spending the summer in Rome and would love to take a few days to visit the Dolomites and see the Lago di Braies. But I don't have a car! Does anyone have any advice how to get there? I figured I'd take a train to Bolzano, but then....? Thank you so much for any advice! -appia
Hi :)! I'll travel to Dolomiti next weekend. Can anyone notify about snow conditions at Dolomiti, start of April? Which hills or which slopes are better to take for spring-skiing (staying in Val de Fassa)? Mille grazie:). I.
On June we are going from Parma twards the Dolomity for about 4 days. Can you please help in planning the tour.
We will be staying in Ortisei for 7 nights and are looking for another town for to spend another 2 to 3 nights. Perhaps something further up in the mountains, but in the direction to Treviso so our trip to the airport won´t be longer than if we were leaving from Ortisei. Does anyone know anything about Arabba or Corvara? Any recommendations? This would be in July.
I plan to go skiing in the Dolomites next Christmas and would like to find a self-catering apartment for six people within relatively easy (driving) reach of the slopes and the Sella Ronda. I have already spent hours on the web but have not really found anything suitable. Any tips would be welcome!
My husband and I want to do some hiking while we are in Italy the end of June. We would like to do a 6 to 7 day trek or hike. Technical climbing is not what we want but we like to cover some ground and altitude when we hike. My husband also likes to hike with a bottle of wine. We love the idea of nice lodging at the end of the day. Any recommendations out there for which area may 'fit' better and have better weather the end of June?
I and my wife are going to spend two weeks around Venice and Firenze, next October. Since Venice is so close to the Dolomiti and my wife - as a good Brasilian - has never seen snow in her life, I was wondering if we could find any small city to spend one day there (the idea: we'd take the train in Venice and spend one day in this "snow" city, and then go back to Venice). Well, I've read about Belluno, that seems to be not a "small" city, and about Feltre and Cadore (all served by train). Which one - or another one - is supposed to have snow on late October, if any? Do you suggest any other place near those? (Answers in Italian are also welcome, we can understand it). Thanks in advance, Marcos Maselli
Currently I am in Trieste. I would like to have two day trekking somewhere in Dolomiti. I have no car and probably will travel by train. I am fit and capable of walking/scrambling the whole day long. Where do you suggest me to go? Thank you
