One breathtakingly beautiful region you should also consider including on your tour to Italy is the bold, charcoal cliffs of the legendary Dolomites.
No secret to anyone who loves world-class skiing, this rugged mountain range with its alpine meadows, deep valleys, and charming towns is an extraordinary small group day trip from Venice.
One of our experienced, English-speaking driver-guides will escort a group of eight from the man-made wonders of Venice along the stunning winding roads through the valleys and peaks that comprise one of Europe’s most incredible mountain ranges. There are countless opportunities for photos in the Dolomites and rest assured we know all the best vantage points along the way, up to an incredible height of 2,360 metres (7,500 feet).
This whole area – despite Mussolini’s best efforts to change the tone of what was once Hapsburg territory – has held steadfast to its German roots. Most locals speak German as well as Italian and some of the settled areas feel almost Austrian.
