The spectacular Dolomites are beautifully unique. With jaw-dropping scenery, the jagged peaks surrounding San Cassiano (also part of the Alta Badia ski area) have to be seen to be believed. An acclaimed culinary hotspot, San Cassiano and the Alta Badia ski area encapsulate a whole array of different culinary traditions and offer some of the world’ best cuisine. Here you’ll find a perfect mix of Austrian, Tyrolean and Mediterranean gastronomy – perfect for those who appreciate fine dining both on and off the slopes.
Skiing in Italy: What’s good, what’s great, and why it’s now in my list of favourites!
Before this February my experience of skiing in Italy had been restricted to day trips taken from French resorts, but this winter an ambitious plan was formed to fulfil several wishes in one trip: Combining a trip to Rome, a 6 Nations rugby match (and a Scotland win!), a week of skiing and a stopover in Verona.
One of the nice things about visiting Italy is that it’s relatively small – and they have a super-efficient high speed rail system which meant we could get from Rome in the south, up to the Trentino region in a little under 4 hours. None of the ski resorts are accessible by rail, but we were able to get a transfer from the town of Trento to Madonna di Campiglio, which took about 2 hours.
