This was one of my absolute favorite parts of the trip. After a week of running around like crazy, we headed up to the Dolomites. It was completely different scenery and was utterly BREATHTAKING. We had planned on doing more hiking, but we ended up just doing a few easy walks and spent nearly 6 hours just reading quietly looking at the view from our apartment. The beauty was so relaxing/peaceful. It was also completely different from everywhere else we had been (more Germanic and very minimal English spoken) so it was a nice change of pace. I’d love to go back there for an extended trip.
