The Dolomites (Dolomiti) are a mountain range in northeast Italy. Part of the Italian Alps, the Dolomites are a volcanic range mostly consisting of limestone rock.

Centered around Cortina D’Ampezzo, this region is a hiking and mountain biking haven in the summer, and a popular ski destination in the winter.

Cortina d’Ampezzo is a great central place to stay. While there are other towns and regions to explore, this area has some of the best hikes and has a range of accommodations.
