Northern Italy and the Desirable Dolomites

Northern Italy and the Desirable Dolomites

The majestic Dolomites are one of Europe’s most spectacular mountain regions with its own unique dramatic scenery, set in a beautiful area of Northern Italy. A blend of towering snow-capped mountains, picturesque lakes and lush fertile valleys with fruit trees and vines dotted with Tyrolean style hamlets. With breathtaking scenery each and every way you turn this region offers a myriad of lovely scenic days out, truly an awe-inspiring area to explore. We have been operating this tour to Fai della Paganella for several years and, without doubt, the popularity of this holiday is down to the fantastic welcome and home comforts provided by our host, Fausto, and the 3 generations of his family.
