Nearby Seiser Alp, which is the largest alpine pasture in Europe, is possibly one of the most stunning parts of the Dolomites.
In summer, hiking trails lead through its green meadows which show off a colourful floral display during June and July.
Of course, winter is all about hitting the slopes. Whilst the region is not acclaimed for the highest mountains or the most glaciers, the Dolomites does offer you lots more.
…the region more than makes up for this with its other pleasures…
Loads of sunshine, fabulous local food, the opportunity to interact with the very welcoming, local culture, not forgetting the spectacular, ever changing visual display created by the sun as it moves across the mountains throughout the day.
So, although the ski terrain may not appeal to the ultimate alpine sport thrill seekers, the region more than makes up for this with its other pleasures.
