Sant'Andrea in Monte, Italy
One of the world’s most distinctive mountain ranges, Italy’s Dolomites are a UNESCO World Heritage site famous for their limestone formations and outstanding natural beauty. Yet this region contains remarkable cultural treasures, too. From the cathedral and cloisters of Bressanone, you’ll follow cobbled lanes through mountainside vineyards to the Abbey of Novacella, a frescoed Baroque jewel. In natural parks like Puez-Odle and Fanes-Senes-Braies, you’ll trek through lush valleys past Ladin cabins into meadows filled with wildflowers.Marvel at high Alpine passes whose wind-carved rock formations and vistas of craggy peaks require you to linger a little longer. Walk from shimmering Lake Misurina to chic Cortina d’Ampezzo, the “Pearl of the Dolomites” and one of Italy’s most beautiful resort towns, and make a circuit of Tre Cime di Lavaredo, the three peaks at the Dolomites’ heart. Spend evenings in Tyrolean hamlets bathed in the pink light of the enrosadira, the legendary sunsets that paint the area’s towering white limestone summits. Crown your experience in the Val Travenanzes, where a cable car takes you up 9,000 feet to the region’s most sensational trail.
