ITALIAN DOLOMITES IN SPRINGTIME

This area of majestic mountains and peaceful valleys dotted with picturesque villages in Northern Italy is largely unspoilt.  We will stay in the Altopiano della Paganella area, a beautiful and much visited district which gravitates around the Paganella mountain and the Brenta Dolomites. Often referred to as The Western Dolomites, these beautiful peaks make up one of the wildest natural parks in Italy. 

The small three star family run Paganella Hotel has a typical Austrian chalet style and sits in the village.
