Getting around the Dolomites without a car

Jump to last reply

Each year about this time I pop up with questions about ski destinations. Our grown son is an excellent skier and we enjoy a little time with him in ski destinations. We do not ski but love to walk about charming ski towns and dine on fondue and other winter delights. We've been to Chamonix, Zermatt, Innsbruck, Kitzbuhl, Garmisch and Salzburg. We're looking for a place for this year's trip. he's mentioned Courcheval, Gstaad and St. Moritz. IMO none of them look to have enough "stuff" in the surrounding areas to occupy us non-skiers and I'm countering with Val Gardena and Cortina in the Dolomites.

My plan would be to fly in and out of Munich spending our first (Dec. 24 to see their Christmas markets) ) and last night of the trip there, then taking the train and bus or taxi to Val Gardena area. My questions are:

How good is the bus transportation among the villages in the area? I'd like to see Castelrotto, Brixen, Corvara and several other places I've started to read about. Any other suggestions?

Can we reasonably "do" Cortina from Val Gardena or should we plan to divide our time between Cortina and Val Gardena? Which has the better skiing? the more to do for non-skiers?

Any other advice or caveats about the area and our plans? Thanks.
