A paradise for those who love sports, nature, the mountains and traditional flavours: these are the Dolomites, the legendary mountain range included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The Dolomites are a series of mountain ranges in the Eastern Italian Alps characterized by their composition: they are made almost entirely of dolomite, a rock mainly made up of the mineral dolomite. It is the latter that gives the famous pale colour.
The mountain complex covers over 140 thousand hectares and extends, as mentioned, over three regions and in particular over five provinces (Trento, Bolzano, Belluno, Pordenone and Udine, with a small part also included in Austria with the Lienz Dolomites).
It’s easy to say Dolomites… but the mountain range is really very extensive. They range from the Brenta Dolomites to the group formed by the Catinaccio and Latemar, from the Sesto Dolomites to the Pale di San Martino, from the Marmolada massif to the group made up of Pelmo and Croda da Lago, to conclude with the Friulian Dolomites, the easternmost all.
Among the most renowned areas is the Dolomiti Superski, an extensive area home to a national park, nine natural parks and the largest Italian ski area.
