saturation  (7 Answers)

What's the overrunness like in the Brenta / Adamello area compared to the Tre Cime / Cortina d'Ampezzo area?
I'd hope it to be a little bit better but it's the one area I've never been to.

Gebirgswandern für Kniegschädigte??  (9 Answers)

Wir planen den nächsten Sommerurlaub im Valsugana oder Val di Cembra, hoffentlich ohne Massentourismus. Wir kennen Südtirol ganz gut und wollen die spektakulären, überlaufenen Regionen vermeiden. Im Gegensatz zu früher machen unsere Knie bei grösseren Abstiegen leider nicht mehr mit...also:
Wo in der Nähe gibt es Seilbahnen / Sessellifte, die auch im Sommer geöffnet sind?
Und wo gibt es schöne Talwanderungen (an Bächen entlang)?

Weather Advice

I am planning to travel to Trentino Alto Adige in April 2012 (5th - 8th). We will be in a hotel in Terlago and plan to do some day trips maybe to Innsbruck and Lago the Garda and other closeby locations. What weather should we expect at that time of the year? I am coming from a totally diffent climate (Malta) so am not very used to snow etc so would like to be well prepared beforehand. We intend to rent a car... Would snow chains be required?

which choise in Trentino?  (14 Answers)

i'm planning to go to the fabolous Trentino-Alto adige this winter. I went there sometimes but more or less ever in the same places: San Martino di Castrozza and Bolzano. This time i decided to change and discover a new place where to stay but i really don't know where to go.
I'd like a place on (or not far) from the Dolomiti and possibly not a "fashion" place as San Martino can be. Any suggestion?
I'd like also to know a good hotel (or residence) that has spa and/or sauna.
I not care very much about skying..i'm more for using the "ciaspole"(that are used for makeing trekking on the snow during the winter..but i don't know how to transalte it in englishLOL)
Thank you

Help wih my travel itinerary

I will be going on holiday with my wife and 12 year old son in July/August and will be arriving in Treviso airport late evening. We will be spending the night in Treviso and on our second day we will be visiting Venice for the day. We will again spend the night in Treviso and On our third day we will leave to go to the Dolomites by car. What places do you suggest I should visit and how many nights should I spend in each place. I really would like to see places with beautiful scenery. As I will be flying again from Treviso, on my way back I would like to take a different route and perhaps visit Soave or Bassano Del Grappa and spend my last night there. I am open for any suggestions which I will greatly appreciate.

Best Regards

Alto Adige, Valle D'Aosta or Insbruck  (9 Answers)

I am planning a road trip to Central & Northern Italy. I will be staying 4 nights at Rome, 4 nights Fiesole in Toscana & 6 nights in Garda.

I would like to spend another 4 nights somewhere in an alpine town. I am looking for a town that has his own custom & food. At first I was thinking about Valle D'Aosta but then I was suggested to visit Alto Adige since it seems less modern and has older customs.
Now I am also considering Insbruck in Austria.

Can anyone please help?

cool summer escape  (2 Answers)

I'm looking (at the last minute) for somewhere to escape the August heat. I know it can get hot in the mountains but I'm coming from Roma so anywhere coolish with cool nights would be nice.
I have no car, so it needs to be relatively easy to get to. How high and cool is Castelrotto? What about Dobbiaco, Selva and Vipiteno?

Val Gardena in late June  (5 Answers)


I will probably be somewhere around Lake Garda in June and I've been thinking of making a short side trip (2-3 full days) to Val Gardena in the end of June for some light day hiking and/or mountain biking.

What kind of weather one can generally expect in late June in Val Gardena? I'm mostly worried about rain and fog, cool weather is not a problem as such. Bolzano seems to be quite nice in late June, but Val Gardena is at a much higher altitude.

I do understand that in the mountains weather can change very rapidly and clear blue skies are never guaranteed, but some kind of information would be greatly appreciated.

Basically I'm pondering whether Val Gardena in late June is worth it - I can always do Val Gardena later at a better time (late July, August?) and reserve more time too.

Driving Difficulty from Bolzano to Cortina  (3 Answers)

We have planned to drive from Bolzano to Cortina in two days, staying overnight in Cortina. We saw that the drive on the Val di Fassa and a return drive via the Val Gardena looked beautiful. We are driving in late May, and thought we would stop occasionally along the way to enjoy the views, have lunch, etc..
Our Cortina hotel tells us these roads are very difficult and each way is over 4.5 hours; they recommend the Val Pusteria route (going up to Bressanone and to Dobbiaco), sayng it is much faster and still beautiful. We have not heard of that Valley.
