Riassunto: Here the traveller obtains a view of the Dolomite Mountains. They are unlike any other mountains, and are to be seen nowhere else among the Alps. They arrest the attention by the singularity and picturesqueness of their forms, by their sharp peaks or horns, sometimes rising up in pinnacles and obelisks, at others extending in serrated ridges, teethed like the jaw of an alligator; now fencing in the valley with an escarped precipice many thousand feet high, and often cleft with numerous fissures, all running vertically. Murray's Handbook, quoted in Gilbert and Churchill, 1864.Nowadays the Dolomites mean a prime holiday destination in both summer and winter with superbly located resorts connected by good roads and equipped for all pockets. An ultra-modern system of space age cable-cars and lifts whisk visitors to dizzy heights in a matter of minutes, extending the range of short routes not to mention easing steep descents. Nature lovers will be delighted by the vast expanses of magnificent forests, high altitude rockscapes and seas of wild flowers. Only a little effort is needed to get away from the 'hot spots' and spend days in solitude on the marvellous network of paths that link hospitable mountain huts.


A popular guidebook to short walks in the Dolomites of north east Italy. The guide describes 50 walks, graded from easy to strenuous, and varying in length from 3 mile strolls to full-day expeditions. The Dolomites are suitable for summer walking, and the mountains are easily accessible, just across the border from Austria and easily reached from Verona, Treviso, Venice and Innsbruck airports.
The Dolomites are blessed with vast forests, high-altitude rocky landscapes and seas of beautiful wildflowers and the range is now a designated Unesco World Heritage Site encompassing a national park - Parco Nazionale Dolomiti Bellunesi - and several other protected areas. Highlights include the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, the Civetta, the Piz Boè circuit on the Sella massif and the Sentiero delle Odle. This guide offers something for every walking ability and preference, and includes all the background and planning information you need to plan a trip, including an Italian-German-English glossary and a list of accommodation providers and websites and details of all rifugios on or near the routes.
