I haven’t been to Italy for a while. This time I chose the Dolomites where I have been a long time ago for skiing, now of course for Hiking. From Meersburg it took about 4,5 hours to get to the Pragser Wildsee to have a little break after the drive before continuing to Cortina d’Ampezzo. Our hotel was 10 Minutes away above the city in Pocol (Sport Hotel Pocol) from where you have great views of the Dolomites. Sadly breakfast started only at 8am. If you want to go hiking and start early this is quite late. Well after a good breakfast we drove up to the Passo Giau from where we hiked east to get to the famous Cinque Torri. Unlike in Austria the hiking signs are not really good, especially if you have no map. The hiking book sucked, so the next day I had to buy a map… Still with a little asking and a hand written map we found the way back 🙂
The next day we drove up to the Drei Zinnen. It is not possible to drive there completely but close. The last 5 kilometers the street fee was more than 20 Euros. They know how to make money… You drive up to 2350m. From there the famous hike goes to the Drei Zinnen Hütte in about 2 hours (with photo stops). Weather was not good but it cleared up during the day. Following the way though the „Lange Alm“ the way lead around the Drei Zinnen back to the parking. On the way back we stopped at a little lake called Lago Antorno to get Pizza :).
The fourth day we changed Hotels to drive a little more South West. First stop was a gondola station at the Passo Falzarego to be lazy and take the gondola up to Lagazuoi at 2733m. Later we drove to Alleghe at a little lake where we stopped. Final destination was Nova Levante. The Hotel (Hotel Adler) was not at the best location directly at the street, but the rooms were not noisy and service and food was amazing!! From here we did a little tour to the Karersee (Lago di Carezza) to take some pictures.
The final day we just drove back. It was not the best weather and a long drive. Altogether we drove 1050 km. Definitely I will come back. Great nature, great mountains (but many tourists…).
