Venice: Mountain Climbing

Queen of the Adriatic

For those of you who enjoy walking and climbing, then you will want to go to the Dolomites - this is the Mountain range in Northern Italy that separates it from Austria and extends westwards to join the Alps. The nearest international airports are Venice and Verona in Italy or Munich and Salzburg to the north. As the Dolomites area is vast, it is advisable to hire a car in order to easily travel around the different areas.
