10 Things To Do In Italy: Dolomites

Italy is a beautiful country to visit. In the north are gorgeous mountains called the Dolomites (Dolomiti.) Nestled in the Dolomiti is a beautiful lake with a small village on it's fringes called Misurina.

(1) It is a gorgeous place to stay and visit. You can walk around the lake. It's especially beautiful during sunrise and sunset.

(6) In town, make sure you eat at Edelweiss- an amazing restaurant with some of the best food I've ever had. It is such a rustic Italian place that when the owner saw I wasn't eating spaghetti the right way she took my fork and spoon and showed me- all while shouting Italian. (A great story and now I finally know how to eat spaghetti!)
(7) Make sure you have some gelato in town- a very flavorful Italian ice cream.

(8) Take a trip out of town to see Tre Cime (Three Sisters)- beautiful mountain formations. You can hike around them- the views are fantastic! Or you can rock climb up them!

(9) The views of the other mountains on the hike are also amazing.

Go up a gondola to get a better view!

(10) It's a great place to spend the week and is even close enough to Venice (Venecia) for a gorgeous day trip.
