Full description for Walking in the Dolomites
Guide to 28 multi-day walks and treks in the Dolomites, Italy, Europe. This guide leads you through breathtaking alpine scenery flanked by well-graded paths and excellent mountain refuges that verge on hotels, easily accessible from the extensive network of public transport from major towns and travel hubs, such as Venice, Verona, Munich and Innsbruck. Any one of these fabulous multi-day walks makes for a memorable holiday in Italy's breathtaking Dolomite mountains. The author weaves the best of her 20-year experience and knowledge of this spectacular region into an original selection of itineraries on foot across each Dolomite group. Many walks follow mule-tracks constructed by troops during the First World War, when Italy fought Austria for possession of crazy summits and tunnels were hewn through impossible mountain-sides. The highlights are emphasised, and the routes are furnished with fascinating explanations of wildlife and flowers. Everything, from a stroll through woods and meadows to family routes, steep rocky zigzag passages and hands-on clambers, is covered. This full-colour revised edition has a wealth of inspiring photos, detailed maps, myriad new routes and heaps of practical help on travelling, sleeping and eating.
