The third honeymoon destination… the Dolomites. If you’ve never heard of it, you’re not alone. I sampled numerous individuals to discover only a quarter had a clue where it is located. The Dolomites are in the Swiss Alps where Italy, Austria and Switzerland intersect. We rented a car in Venice and drove 3 hours up into the mountains. Temps dropped from 100 degrees in Venice to 55 degrees in the Dolomites, a welcomed change. This magical place has beautiful hikes and relaxing massages. Each evening concluded with a 6 course meal. The perfect getaway!
We stayed at the Rosalpina Dolomites. With excellent staff and personal service, this hotel seemed more like a large cottage run by a family. Even a large brown lab roamed the grounds, mingled with guests and enjoyed any unattended food.
I’m still undecided my favorite part of the honeymoon….here or Santorini. I hope someday to return and experience a full two weeks in the Dolomites and South Tyrol, both dreamy destinations.
