The Dolomites are some of the most beautiful mountains in the world, certainly are the most beautiful in Europe. The Dolomites, a masterpiece of nature, were included in the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2009. With this tour you will be taken in the heart of these beautiful mountains and then visit the famous Gardena Valley with its most important center, Ortisei.

The Great Dolomites Road runs through the Dolomites from Bolzano to Cortina d’Ampezzo. Along the road it is possible to admire the most beautiful views of the Dolomites and to reach the Pordoi Pass (2.239 m) and the Sella Pass (2.244 m), two of the most important and panoramic passes in the Alps.

Itinerary

Depart from Bolzano, the Gateway to the Dolomites, capital of the province South Tyrol; then cross the Ega Valley which begins at Bolzano and runs eastward between the Rosengarten and the Latemar mountains. This road was built in 1895 when the territory was part of the Austro Hungarian Empire. Part of the route is located in a canyon carved by the river Ega.

Stop at Carezza Lake, the most beautiful lake of the Dolomites; with 30 minutes of staying time and the chance to walk around the lake (optional); then head to Costalunga Pass. Near the Pass you will see the historical “Grand Hotel Carezza”, built in 1893, the first luxury hotel in the Dolomites which hosted very important guests like the Empress Sissi, Winston Churchill, Agatha Christie.

From the Costalunga Pass, reach the Fassa Valley in Trentino and pass through the towns of  Vigo di Fassa and Canazei to arrive under the imposing peaks of the Sella Groups. From here, a long series of 27 hairpins bends (switchbacks) begins, that will lead you to the famous Pordoi Pass at an altitude of 2.239 meters above sea level. One hour of staying time if you decide to arrive with the cable car to Sass Pordoi (altitude of 2950 meters: the cable car is open from late May until mid-October and from Christmas to Easter).

From the Pordoi Pass you will return back a few kilometers to reach the Sella Pass: here the landscape is really impressive with the Sella vertical walls that stand right in front of you and from the Sella Pass you can admire the Marmolada glacier (3,343 m) and the majestic Sassolungo (3,181 m), the most famous mountain in Gardena Valley: 10 minute stop for photos;

Coming down from the Sella Pass you will enter in the Gardena Valley, the best known tourist valley of the Dolomites and you will have the chance to see its largest town, the beautiful Ortisei: one hour of staying for lunch break and to visit the town.

 From Ortisei in less than an hour, you'll be back in Bolzano.

Bolzano (town province of Alto Adige, South Tyrol), once city of merchants, is today also city of art, show, culture, exchange and vacation. For its location the city is also called 'the Gateway to the Dolomites'. The expert guide will lead you through the charming narrow streets, past architectural gems and the landmarks of the historical center of the city. Please don’t hesitate to ask your guide to introduce you the city he/she knows and loves, you might discover and experience something completely new. 
Roncolo (Runkelstein) Castle encloses the largest cycle of secular frescoes dating back to the Middle Ages. Its representation of Medieval society and its strategic location made it one of the foremost attractions of the region.

The guided tour starts in Walther Square. The Piazza Walther was completed in 1808 by order of King Massimiliano di Baviera, and initially named after him. In 1901, it was dedicated to Walther von der Vogelweide (1170-1230), one of the great German poets and storytellers of the Middle Ages. In the same square you will admire the Cathedral of Bolzano, a late Medieval and a Romanesque Basilica (1180). After one century the site has opened to a new imposing construction, completed around 1420. The bell tower, with an open fretwork spire in sandstone, which stands 65m tall, was built by the Suevian architect, Hans Lutz von Schusseried, between 1501 and 1519.

The tour will continue to Vicolo della Pesa, one of the oldest places in Bolzano once hosting the castle of the Prince-Bishops of Trento (destroyed in 1277 by Mainardo II di Tyrolo) and the church of Sant’Andrea (destroyed in 1785). One of the most picturesque buildings of the city is situated to the North of this square: la casa della Pesa (1634), a public weigh-house until 1780.

See Via and piazza della Mostra with the prestigious palaces of Campofranco and the Portici (Arcades): once the heart of the Medieval village, they have kept their characteristics to date with their seamless continuity of shops, some typical and traditional, others chic and modern. You will also see Piazza del Municipio (Town Hall Square), via Bottai (Coopers street), via Joseph Streiter, Franciscan Church,  via Argentieri and Piazza delle Erbe to continue to the Dominican church. The Dominican friars settled in Bolzano in 1272 and had their church built with one nave only inside a large convent comprising different chapels, some of them destroyed, and a magnificent cloister.The jewel of the entire complex is cappella di San Giovanni, a long and narrow side chapel with the most magnificent fresco cycle of the Giotto School in the province.

Once visited the center, the tour continues to Roncolo Castle. Roncolo, a Medieval castle located in the surroundings of Bolzano, is particularly famous due to its mundane fresco cycle dating back to the Middle Ages. This fresco cycle illustrates authentic knight sagas, literature scenes, court ladies and life on the farm as well as haunting scenes. The original complex has been built by the Lords of Wangen in 1237. 

Today the castle can be reached by a walk of half an hour and is one of the main attractions of the city of Bolzano. Particularly those who are interested in arts and history are attracted by the castle complex.

There are a few summits that have come to symbolise the word “mountain”. The Tre Cime di Lavaredo would certainly top an imaginary hit list of these. Many people have seen the Tre Cime in illustrations hundreds of times and think that they know them, but the moment you see them "in nature" is a moment not to be forgotten. This proposal is circular and unforgettable hike around the Three Peaks of Lavaredo.

The Tre Cime di Lavaredo (Three peaks of Lavaredo) are a bizarre and striking alpenstock belonging to the Sesto Dolomites, mainly characterised by its distinctive form.

The famous alpenstock consists of the Cima Grande (2,999 m) which is the pinnacle in the middle, the Cima Piccola (2,857 m) and the Cima Ovest (west peak, 2,973 m). The view on the north face of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo is one of the most famous alpine images and views all over the world.

Transfer info:
