Bolzano: Best of the Dolomites in One Day Private Tour

2. Bolzano: Best of the Dolomites in One Day Private Tour

Following a pickup from your hotel, you’ll head first to Bolzano, gateway to the Dolomites and capital of the province South Tyrol. Cross the Eggental valley that runs eastward between the Rosengarten massif and the Latemar mountain range. This road was built in 1894 when the territory was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Stop at Lake Carezza, the most beautiful lake of the western Dolomites, for a 30-minute break and walk around the lake. Next, arrive at Karerpass where you’ll see the historical Residence Grand Hotel Carezza, built in 1893, this was the first luxury hotel in the Dolomites and has hosted very important guests including the Empress Sissi, Winston Churchill, and Agatha Christie. From the Karerpass you’ll 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 group. From here, begin a long series of 27 hairpin bends that will lead you to the famous Pordoi Pass at an altitude of 2,239m above sea level. Enjoy a one-hour break or take the cable car to Sass Pordoi at an altitude of 2,950m. From the Pordoi Pass, go down to the village of Arabba and continue east to the Falzarego Pass, the gateway to the eastern Dolomites. You’ll reach Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy’s premier mountain resort known as the Pearl of the Dolomites where the Winter Olympic Games were hosted in 1956. Cortina, together with Milan, will once again host the Winter Olympics in 2026. From Cortina, the next stop will be Lake Misurina with its incredible panoramic view of Three Peaks of Lavaredo. The lake, with its view of the peaks to the north and Sorapis to the south, is the most famous image of the Dolomites in the world. Just 20 minutes from Lake Misurina you’ll have the opportunity for a brief stop at another important lake in the Eastern Dolomites, Lake Dobbiaco. From Dobbiaco, you’ll reach the extreme northeast of Italy just a few kilometers from the border with Austria for the great finale of the day: a visit to the famous Lake Braies. From here, you’ll return to Bolzano via the Pusteria and the Isarco valleys.

On the way with Christine and Aurora in Verona, very nice and funny guides. Reliable bus driver. Group size with regard to the occupation of the bus a bit borderline due to Corona. The approach to the approach in Limone is very long at 3 hours. Stay in Verona is still sufficient with 5 hours. It was a beautiful, but also exhausting day - as is usually the case with city tours ;-) ..

A really good trip.

We thoroughly enjoyed the trip. The scenery on route was stunning as were the Dolomites and the places we visited were also. The guide was exceptional! Her knowledge & language skills were brilliant. It was a shame about the weather but it didn't spoil anything. It was a wonderful day & trip.

It is a great trip to Dolomites if you are staying at Garda area and want to take a break of driving long distances. Pack a rain/wind coat, cash, water and some power bars with you.

Alessandro was fantastic from all points of view. he's a friend! the tour let's not talk about it TOP Long live the Dolomites! Highly recommended !!

This is a full day trip which is well worth it the scenery is just beautiful and the views are breathtaking I loved it and Anna the host is great
