Our next stop on our Italian adventure was a place on our bucket list for ages… A trip to the Dolomites. We were very excited to get up that morning for a day of adventure. Driving up to the Dolomites itself just took my breath away. The closer we got, the more charming it got.Before heading up the mountain range, we stopped off in the charming Italian village of Cortina d’Ampezzo. The town itself is situated in the river Boîte and surrounded with the Dolomites. An elegant, picturesque town in the summer sunshine and also a very popular spot in the ski season.
After exploring Cortina, we headed on the cable car up the mountain. The views were absolutely spectacular as we moved up the mountain range.
The Dolomites comprises a mountain range in the northern Italian Alps, numbering 18 peaks which rise to above 3,000 metres. This mountain range was formed more than 224 million years ago. Once 500ft under the sea, nowadays their pink-granite, fossil-rich peaks now kiss the clouds. As it wasn’t ski season, we decided to go for a small hike once we got to the top. With trails clearly marked, we headed off to explore the breathtaking views.
After a great day of adventure, we headed back down the mountain range and ticked another spot off our Italy bucket list.
Until the next episode …. Chao
We were delighted to collaborate with Heffernan’s Travel on this adventure.
