How many of you have put Dolomites on their wishlist? Dolomites are not only a place you have to see once in a life. Dolomites are The place which can lead you to addiction.
Dolomites on a cabriolet or on two wheels?
Over the last few weeks Mauri and me have dreamt about driving our cabriolet on the wonderful dolomitic road. Up and down the numerous passes though majestic landscapes. This is our first tour in pairs since we had our lovely baby. We plan to repeat the same tour as we did many times on our two wheels. We have high expectations. So we leave happy. And much lighter than usual, as we do not need to wear safety equipment we need by motorbike. We missed to consider a very important thing: it is almost unreal to drive as much kilometers and passes by cabriolet (at least in our case). Especially considering I suffer from a terrible car sickness. Roads by car seems to be much narrow than by motorbike and we completely miss the freedom feeling we have by motorbike. To sum up: Motorbike 1 – Cabriolet 0 !
The best dolomitic passes (according to me)
If you plan to visit Dolomite, in particular I’m referring to the Veneto and Trentino area you can’t miss the following passes:
- 4 Passes Tour: this is pure magic. Sella, Pordoi, Gardena and Campolongo will leave you speechless;
- Giau Pass: this is on the top step of my podium;
- Duran Pass: an intimate and romantic one;
- Rolle Pass: where I saw the best sunset I ever seen in my life.
- Check all the passes are open before your departure;
- As Dolomites are very crowded in this period of the year, you should prefer Saturday to Sunday;
- I’m sure you will come back on the Dolomites. Than plan your journey on the contrary direction. You will discover a completely new landscape.
