Bolzano to Venice mid Sept

We are taking a train from Salzburg to Bolzano and will get rental car there. We want to spend one night in Dolomites before heading to Venice. We are not hikers but want to see the area. There seem to be so many different areas - any recommendations on where to stay?

Stay in Ortisei in the Val Gardena.
The next day take the Dolomite highway via Arraba for lunch in Cortina and then on to Venice. Have fun !

Agree with the above, Ortisei is a great base. When are you going? Check out the schedules for the lifts to take you up into the mountains. Amazing!

Sorry I see your title! Mid September I think most lifts are still open...some may close mid month so just be sure the ones you want are open.

I like Cortina d'Ampezzo, home to a past winter Olympics and just a sweet town in a beautiful area.

With just a day in the Dolomiti I wouldn't bother to take a lift. What many people most appreciate is a moment to get out of their car or any other mechanical contraption and take a walk and appreciate the natural surroundings.

In mid-September the towns will have a less crappy, touristy feel to them, but I wouldn't linger in any of them. Take your time along the scenic roads and leave time for a walk and a picnic outdoors. The beauty is the nature there, not the tourist industry.
