Where to stay in the Dolomites

Jump to last reply

Roughly sketching out a 2-week trip next May. First task is to get airline tickets, probably fly into Verona and fly out of Turin.

Would spend the first 2 or 3 nights in Verona. Or I could shorten it as I've been before. VRN seems to be as good an airport to reach the Dolomites as any, unless someone has a better suggestion. The main constraint is that these would be award airline tickets, so my options are probably Milan, Venice, Verona. Maybe INN if AZ has flights from FCO to INN.

So I would pick up the rental car in Verona and head up towards Bolzano. Searched accommodations in Bolzano and Ortisei. Seems like the hotels/inns in Bolzano are pricey. There are some places north/northwest of Bolzano which are already sold out. They appear to be in the wilderness.

A few are still available, like 5-10 km away. I don't have plans to do any serious hiking. I get enough workout mainly walking miles to see the sights, take pictures. Mainly would be interested in cable cars or funiculars to get to some scenic points.

So the question is, is there less convenience to be away from the bigger towns? Will you be stuck with whatever the hotel offers for meals or is it easy to drive into towns like Bolzano and Ortisei for dinner?

I noticed some of the Bolzano hotels near the center charge a lot for parking, so it sounds like other popular Italian towns which are difficult to drive into, with difficult parking, ZTL, etc.

Some places offer shuttles into Bolzano. I haven't looked extensively at accommodations in Ortisei or some of the other towns but it seems like you'd have similar choices, between really being away from towns to being in more central locations. But I wonder if it's as difficult to stay in these towns in the mountains with a car as it would be in areas like Tuscany.
