Italia 2019 : Postscript

Although Italy is now a long way away, the memories of an epic time in the Dolomites are still vivid so here are a few statistics on the ground we covered as well and a few more photos. According to the stats we walked a total of 61.8km. Thank you Charles for filling in some […]

Day 6: Puzzoni di Moena

Our last day in Moena started with the cheese festival again in bright sunshine with a varied and entertaining procession through the main street. As David pointed out we had spent most of our week so far walking past herds of stationary cattle and now it was their turn to walk past us, along with […]

Day 5: Passo San Pellegrino

It was our last big walk today again in glorious sunshine. We started at the top of the chair lift at Costabella at 2278m and covered 13km finishing at a height of 1921m. The climbs and descents were fairly gentle. After lunch we headed back  in three groups but not all  to the same car […]

Days 3 & 4

Day 2: Val Venegia

Another superb day with stunning weather and just what we needed after a tough day yesterday.

All the photos will be uploaded here each day

From Debbie & Paulo We have just returned from a very successful trip to Moena, the 4* Hotel Maria is very centrally situated and quite similar in style to the La Perla in Canazei.  A short 2 min walk along the river takes you into the centre of Moena which is delightful and practically traffic […]
