Day 1: Private tour in the heart of the Dolomites
Departure from Bolzano, the Gateway to the Dolomites, capital of the province of South Tyrol. We drive northwards through the Isarco Valley and then eastwards along the famous Gardena Valley until we reach the famous Gardena Pass. We then reach Cortina d'Ampezzo, the 'Pearl of the Dolomites', Italy's first holiday resort and site of the 1956 Winter Olympics. From Cortina we then reach Lake Misurina with the incredible panoramic view of the Three Peaks of Lavaredo. In about 40 minutes we reach the far north-eastern part of Italy, just a few kilometres from the Austrian border, for the grand finale of the day with a visit to the famous Lake Braies. Return towards Bolzano.
Free lunch and dinner and overnight stay on request.
