Visiting the Dolomites in late October - need advice!

Jump to last reply

Planning a trip to Italy with my husband and our toddler. We are flying in/out of Venice and were hoping to include a few days (maybe 4) exploring the Dolmites - Bolzano to Cortina perhaps spending two or three nights in Val Gardena and using that as a base.

We would be there at the very end of October and we'd like to know what the atmosphere and conditions might be then? Will we have missed all the fall foliage? Will all the cable cars be closed? Is it even worth going there at that time of year? Should we save this area for another visit to Italy? We don't want to go if it's simply a horrible time to be driving/walking around that area and would appreciate any advice.

Many thanks! Sara
