THE DOLOMITES - BEHIND THE SCENES
Written by Jenn Byrne for Sunday Afternoons

Where do I begin describing the immense beauty that is the Dolomites? The Dolomites are a mountain range located in northeastern Italy. Before this trip, I’ll be the first to admit I had no idea what my friend was talking about when he suggested visiting. As it turned out, not only were we awed by spectacular 360 degree views every step of the way, we were greeted by an amazing blend of cultures as a result of the WWI history in the area. At the top of every hike we were served home cooked Italian, Austrian or German meals in unique rifugios, or mountain huts, with what felt like a never-ending supply of wine by the carafe. Over the course of five days we explored only a small portion of what this place has to offer. After spending time in this special place, I now believe that the saying “photos don’t do it justice” may have actually come from the Dolomites.
Ultimate pro tip: book a flight to Innsbruck, Austria or Venice, Italy (the nearest major airports)
