This guidebook — the only general guide to the Dolomites in English — is an ideal companion for motorists and cyclists who want to tour the glorious countryside of the Dolomites by car, as well as those planning a summer holiday walking in the Dolomites. Even visitors who go for the skiing season will find it useful!
The book combines the best features of our ‘Landscapes‘ walking and car touring guides with all the detail you would expect in a hefty general guide. Coverage includes: getting there and getting about; accommodation and restaurants; practicalities A-Z; history; walks illustrated with large-scale maps; cycling routes; fold-out area map; detailed town plans showing locations of all sights, hotels and restaurants; many ‘feature‘ panels; 100 web addresses; lift opening times (summer and winter) with current prices.
Each chapter covers a specific area, with detailed information about the various towns and villages — from the ‘sights’ to lift opening times, local websites for more information, and restaurants (there are about 150 restaurant recommendations in the book). The main walks are described in the same chapters, but there are also detailed descriptions of dozens of other walking and cycling ‘tips’.
Inspiring book. I like the Sunflower series of walking books as they always contain lovely photographs that make you want to get out there right now.
This one was no exception, and I found the alternative versions of the walks helpful as many of the routes would not otherwise be suitable for drivers.
The Dolomites are stunning and you don¹t need to be exceptionally fit to get away from the other tourists. When we went in June there was still some snow on the higher routes so we decided we will go back next year to have a go at the walks we could not tackle this time. We will be taking this book with us. (TA, Amazon)
Area covered: the eastern Dolomites (east of the A22 motorway) rising in the provinces of South Tyrol, Trento and Belluno, plus an area outside the Dolomites — the eastern part of South Tyrol. The bordering cities of Bozen/Bolzano, Brixen/Bressanone and Bruneck/Brunico are also described, with town plans. (The book does not take in the Brenta Dolomites west of the A22 motorway.).
The best months for walking in the Dolomites and eastern South Tyrol are from May to October.

Cancellations - non personalised/bespoke items
The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations) provide consumers with the right to a 'cooling-off' period to allow you to change your mind. Under these regulations, you have the right to cancel your order, without explanation, within 14 days of delivery (starting the day after you receive the goods) and to return the goods for a refund within a further 14 days (28 days in total). The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.
