»Val Gardena

Val Gardena


Val Gardena is a valley in Northern Italy in the Dolomites mountains best known for great skiing, rock climbing, and woodcarving. There are three main villages that are the center of the valley life: Ortisei, Selva Val Gardena, and St. Christina. Woodcarving has long been a pastime of farmers during long winter days. Since most of the carved figurines in the past were of religious themes, they became a major export to churches all over the world starting around the 17th century. Today, woodcarving is still a big local industry. The Val Gardena valley is famous worldwide for winter sports; it has been home to the men’s World Cup downhill race since 1969 and a number of other international ski events. There are several ski resorts, and the whole valley is a popular winter as well as summer vacation spot –ski circuits like Sella Ronda serve as a perfect biking route in the summer, and the mountains are perfect for rock climbing when the snow melts. 25 Best Things to Do in the Dolomites, Italy - Photo: Evgeny Dontsov/Fotolia

Alpine Botanic Garden of the Viotte


At 1500 meters above the sea on Monte Bondone on the Viotte Plateau overlooking the city of Trento is a rare Alpine Botanic Garden with more than 1,000 species of plants from the mountainous regions of the world. Spread across ten acres, the garden was originally established in 1938, severely damaged in World War II, and meticulously renewed in 1958. Plants are grouped by areas of origin such as Alps, the Himalayas, or the Caucasus Mountains, among others. Naturally Alpine plants take precedence, especially since the lush meadows of Viotte are naturally covered with wild Alpine flowers and herbs, have excellent southern exposure, and plenty of water from the nearby bog. Many plants are endemic to the region.

»Civetta

Civetta


Civettais amountainin theDolomites range, a part of the Belluno province, providing a beautiful background for the quaint village of Alleghe. The mountain is known as “the wall of walls” among mountain climbers and more poetically “the most beautiful rock wall in the Alps” by the Italian writer Dino Buzzati. The reason for the name is the almost vertical cliff four kilometers long between Cima Su Alto and the Torre Coldai at 2,600 m, dropping 1000 meters to the valley bottom. While very popular among mountaineers, it is considered quite difficult. “Civetta” means “owl,” but it is not clear how the mountain got that name. There are some legends about the mountain being cursed, and in Italy the owl is often linked with bad fate. 25 Best Things to Do in the Dolomites, Italy - Photo: Stefano Gasparotto/Fotolia

»Albergo Diffuso

Albergo Diffuso


The "albergo Diffuso" or “scattered hotel” concept was developed in Friuli in the 80s in order to reconstruct whole villages previously destroyed by the earthquake. The village buildings, made of wood and stone, were completely restored in the local style of architecture and offered as tourist lodgings. Tourists can have a holiday that allows them to partake in mountain village life, socialize with local people, observe their customs and habits, and get involved as much or as little as they wish. Accommodation includes a fully equipped kitchen, heating system, fresh linens, and all other amenities hotels offer. Sauris is one of forty such hotels in Italy. Located in the Carnia Mountains, it is located at 1000-1400 m above sea level and offers spectacular views. It is famous for the miraculous healings ascribed to the village shrine.
