A natural beauty that over time has attracted travelers from all over the world. The Dolomites, that cover 142 thousands hectares, received the recognition of Natural Heritage by the UNESCO in 2009. The Dolomites formed 200 millions of years ago from the sea and today they reach a height of 3.000 meters. The Dolomites take their name from the carbonate rock dolomite, itself named for 18th-century French mineralogist Déodat Gratet de Dolomieu who was the first to describe the mineral which still confers a particular charm to one of the world’s most beautiful mountains chains. A perfect setting for those who practice winter and summer sports, a paradise for those in search of a relaxing holiday and for nature lovers. A pure air environment for young and old travelers for whom it is not easy to find a more evocative place than these imposing mountains. The Dolomites offer a huge variety in landscapes, in splendid nature parks. Magic and emotions that make one dream midst a region without forgetting how important it is to protect these regions.
