Dolomites, Valle d'Aosta, or both - and for how long

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to plan a trip for next July (2015) and I think I want to do both the Dolomites and Valle d'Aosta but not sure how long to spend in either of them. We would want to do at least a couple cable car rides and short (half day) hikes but hiking is not the sole, or even the main, purpose. We just like to visit regions and towns. And photograph them.

In the Dolomites I'd want to see Trento, Bolzano, and Bressanone plus a few 'picturesque' villages, drive the Grand Strada delle Dolomiti and as I said, do at least one cable car ride/hike. I was thinking of basing in Bressanone.

Then we'd probably spend a couple nights (one full day) on Lake Garda - north end (I've been to the south end and loved it but don't feel the need to go back right now).

Then Valle d'Aosta. Probably base in Aosta. Definitely want to see the Matterhorn from the Italian side. I saw it from Zermatt (Gornergrat) a few years ago and loved it (took the train up and hiked part way down) and would love to see it from the other side. Several of the castles in the Aosta valley region look interesting.

This will part of a longer trip. I was thinking of about 10 nights total for this section (4 Dolomites, 2 lake Garda, 4 Aosta). Does this sound right? But real flexible at this point.

Suggestions for timing, things to add, to skip.
Thanks
