Did I like the Dolomites? I missed Venice for the Dolomites! I missed Lake Como for the Dolomites! I missed Bergamo for the Dolomites! Did I regret it? Not even for a fraction of one second. Everything they say about these mountains is true and then some. Frankly, you can have the boorish crowds and the jammed piazzas of the "must-see" destinations. Give me the uncrowded slopes and stunning vistas these ranges have to offer. Before I left Australia I said I was leaving the best till last and my opinion hasn't changed one iota.
We did a day trip from La Villa to Cortina and then back through Arabba. To say the scenery was fantastic would be a gross understatement.
This shot was taken somewhere near Arabba.
