I took the Dolomites day trip from Venice at the start of October and loved every moment of it. The drive went very smoothly, and the driver gave us plenty of facts about the locations and their history as we passed them on our route. We had enough stops along the way to walk around and take in the beauty the Dolomites mountains offer. I took a cable car during our free time in Cortina, and the view was just unbelievable.
