For anyone who enjoys skiing or other outdoor winter sports, the spectacular Dolomite Mountains are an exceptional destination for many reasons.
Winter means off-season benefits for travel in Italy. Not only are accommodations less expensive than during other seasons, flights and other transportation costs are often more budget friendly as well.
Italian cuisine is renowned around the globe for good reason! When you have worked up an appetite enjoying the snow, getting fresh air, and surveying the awe-inspiring scenery, you can warm up and indulge your tastebuds with Italy’s culinary delights. You might even want to consider adding some of our inspired Italy wine and food tours to your trip itinerary!
Great snow conditions
If you’re serious about skiing, then you need to know that in the past few years Italy has had some of Europe’s best ski conditions. During the 2013-2014 season in fact, Italy’s famous Southern Tyrol (also called Südtirol) boasted three metres of the white stuff. If you’re after a superski lift pass to test your ability on different slopes and ski courses, Avventure Bellissime specializes in custom-designed Italy vacation packages.
Fun and festive
Italians know how to embrace life and winter in Italy is no exception. Good food, good wine, plenty to do, and always a warm welcome. Skiing is world class, but the expectation in Italy is that you’ll enjoy the experience (rather than the focus on how well you ski elsewhere on European ski hills). Add to the excellent ski conditions all the reasons to love Christmas in Italy and you have a memorable winter getaway.
Traveling with family? Enjoy family friendly Italian vacations because in the Bel Paese (beautiful country) family comes first. No one will blink if you bring children from babies to teens to the best of hotels or restaurants and you’ll soon see how easily generations of Italians mix and mingle in all aspects of society.
Naturally in a country known as a paradise for art enthusiasts, even in the mountains you can find art to appreciate and history to investigate. The Dolomite Mountains themselves are among Italy’s many World Heritage sites.
