The Dolomites are a mountain range stretched out across northeastern Italy, in the autonomous region of Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol. Site of rocky gray cliffs towering over green meadows, the Dolomites is a heaven for mountain lovers. Culturally the region offers the best of two worlds, with most of the population being bilingual in German and Italian.
The region has a wealth of charming towns to visit, ranging from the unmissable Bolzano with its laid-back lifestyle, to historic Brunico, luxurious Cortina d'Ampezzo or Ortisei Val Gardena famous for its woodcarving.
But what you really come here for is of course to head into the mountains. There are many natural wonders to be explored here, but the Alpe di Siusi deserves special mention as an absolute must-see. This is the highest Alpine meadow in entire Europe and is guaranteed to satisfy all your Alpine fantasies (think grazing cows, green grass and towering mountain tops). [Review by travelindicator]
