The Great Dolomite Road guide leads you in a drive on the Great Dolomite Road, from Bolzano to Cortina d’Ampezzo. The itinerary goes through Karneid, Nova Levante, Carezza Lake, Passo di Costalunga, Vigo di Fassa, Pozza di Fassa, Campitello di Fassa, Canazei, Pecol, the Fadaia Pass, Pieve di Livinallongo, Col di Lana, Falzarego Pass, Valparola Ridge, Cinque Torri, and the Tofana.
The Great Dolomites Road crosses three regions: Südtirol, Trentino, and Veneto. It is a classic itinerary to visit some of the most scenic parts of the Dolomites. I advised anyone driving along it is to begin in Bozen (Bolzano in Italian). It is a paved and very well developed road. With a maximum gradient of 12%, it requires real driving, has many curves and hairpin bends. I don’t recommended the route for teams: the streets are very narrow and confusing, from the Fassa Valley onwards.
Numerous viewpoints and parking areas on the Great Dolomite Road allow a panoramic view of the surrounding Dolomites. The guide starts with a description of the main attractions in Bolzano: the Ötzi Iceman Museum. It covers Bolzano’s castles, and nearby locations.
