Val Gardena – the largest Italian resort

Val Gardena is a valley in the Dolomites, part of the world’s largest ski region Dolomiti Superski. The ski pass of the same name unites 12 large ski areas and gives access to 1,200 km of slopes – but, of course, not all of them are connected directly by lifts.

Therefore, it is very difficult to talk about your feelings – involuntarily repeated in each sentence empty and faceless words “beautiful”, “wonderful” and “amazing”. But still I will try …

It all started with the fact that my young man and I came to a travel agency and bought a ticket to Italy. Our tour was called “Classical Italy” and included visiting Venice, Padua, Florence, Rome and San Marino. We traveled in a group of 17 people, accompanied by a guide Tamara and a very charming Italian driver Pierrot.
