On holiday in the World Heritage Site

Since they were “discovered” in the nineteenth Century by people from Europe and from all over the world, the Dolomites have always been a visited and appreciated tourist destination. The exceptional beauty of the landscapes, the extraordinary geological and geo-morphological importance, the richness of nature, the charming ascents to the top of the mountains or even just the walks down in the valley: all this leads many tourists and travellers to choose the Dolomite little towns and valleys for their sporting or relaxing holidays. In every season the Dolomites offer something unique and exciting: the awakening of nature in spring, the summer vitality and the rich autumn colors, up to the whiteness of winter with kilometers of ski slopes for the practice of snow and ice sports.

From the second half of the nineteenth century the accommodation offer in the Dolomites has been considerably developed, presenting today a wide range of facilities ranging from campsites to apartments, from guest houses to hotels of all levels to meet tastes and needs of every guest.

The towns of the region steadily organize also events, activities and services to create a tourism offer able to meet the needs of those who wish to stay in the Dolomites World Heritage Site enjoying the extraordinary beauty that these mountains can give: from an endless variety of sport offers to wellness spas, from peripatetic walks to literacy initiatives in high altitude, from the visits to museums to the knowledge of the Dolomite products.
