Italy's snowy paradise of peaks and valleys that remain in the heart
The Dolomites are one of Italy's many natural wonders that UNESCO has listed as a World Heritage Site. This mountain complex in the Eastern Alps stretches over 140,000 hectares between Trentino Alto Adige, Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia.
The highest peak is the Marmolada, which is not by chance known throughout the world as the Queen of the Dolomites, with 3,348 metres reached from Punta Penia. Among the most photographed points, the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, standing out between the provinces of Belluno and Bolzano, have a place of honour.
With glaciers, cosy valleys, nature parks, Alpine lakes, elegant towns, peaks that seem to touch the sky and Italy's largest ski area, the Dolomites are a wonder to be discovered at any time of year.
From Ortisei, in the heart of the Gardena Valley, to San Martino di Castrozza, in the upper Primiero Valley, via Cortina d'Ampezzo and Vigo di Fassa, every corner of the Dolomites guarantees everyone holidays and weekends of relaxation, adventure and wellness in close contact with unspoilt nature. It is impossible not to feel recharged before such majesty.
