Dolomites in May? Worth it?

Jump to last reply

Hi- We bought our plane tickets for May, knowing that May is a beautiful time to visit Italy. Unfortunately, we didn't take into account that farther north, it's still, kind of, winter.

We are trying to find lodging in the Dolomites, and keep getting messages back that everything is closed. My question - is it worth visiting the Dolomites in mid-late May, IF we find someplace that is open? Is it too risky with the weather (meaning we won't see anything because of fog/clouds). Will any shops and restaurants be open in any of the towns? We were looking at going over to the Austrian Alps for a couple days as well, but that's not sounding great either. Maybe even worse.

We're coming to celebrate our 30th anniversary, and this is a big deal for us, never having been to Europe, so we want it to be amazing.

We are planning on the first few nights in Venice (flying into Milan), and have a total of 10 nights. We like small, quaint villages/towns, with amazing scenery (since I'm an amature landscape photographer and we both love vistas, beautiful scenery, etc.) Not as much into history or museums or cities. If we decide not to go to the Dolomites, are there other areas, drivable from Milan (and not too pricey) that you recommend? I was looking at Cinque Terre too, but thought it might be too crazy crowded - especially since I hear that we're going during holiday weekends.

Thanks! I'm getting discouraged and kind of disappointed. Wishing we hadn't jumped on those tickets without checking the weather conditions farther north.
