For more detail, always prefer 1:25,000 scale maps. Both Tabacco and Kompass maps are OK.

You can bu them on line at http://ecommerce.escursionista.it

Also, if you haven't already done so, you might want to check out the Lonely Planet Guide to Walking in Italy. I have not used it for the Dolomites, but for other areas. It may help you identify some of the better hikes in the area.

Hi there, I always use the Tobacco 1:25.000, because it gives you good detail.

As far as favourite hikes go, where does one start?! A classic is to take the Dantercepies lift out of the valley from Selva (or walk up if you´re feeling really energetic) to above the Passo Gardena.

From there take track number 2 up over the Cir mountain and round the end of the Valunga to the Puez hut for lunch, from where you can choose a couple of different routes of varying difficulty back down into the valley, or continue your walk on the scramble over the Col de Pieres to Stevia and down.

An average walker will take about 5 hours to do the walk to Puez and down, with a stop for lunch.

A fast, fit walker will take about 7 hours to include the Col de Pieres and Stevia.
