Présentation de l'éditeur
A fully-updated second edition of a popular guide to short walks, suitable for summer and winter walking, in the Dolomite mountains of northeastern Italy, just across the border from Austria and easily reached from Verona, Treviso, Venice and Innsbruck airports. The guide describes 50 walks, graded from easy to strenuous, and varying in length from 3 mile strolls to full-day expeditions. The Dolomites are blessed with vast forests, high-altitude rocky landscapes and seas of beautiful wildflowers and the range is now a designated Unesco World Heritage Site encompassing a national park - Parco Nazionale Dolomiti Bellunesi - and several other protected areas. Highlights include the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, the Civetta, the Piz Boe circuit on the Sella massif and the Sentiero delle Odle. This guide offers something for every walking ability and preference, and includes all the background and planning information you need to plan a trip, including an Italian-German-English glossary and a list of accommodation providers and websites and details of all rifugios on or near the routes.
