Hi Everyone, We're recently back from Grindewald, Switzerland where we had the best ever vacation. We've decided to now go to the Dolomites for 5 nights in September. Our interests - hiking, gorgeous scenery and photography. We will have a car since we'll be heading to Tuscany for the second part of the trip.
We are looking for - fairly "busy" town, a few shops to browse in, a choice of restaurants and bars. A variety of hikes right at our door step so we don't have to spend too much time each day getting to/from the hike. We prefered the "panoramic views" from Grindelwald rather than having a hotel sitting smack in the middle of the mountains...probably because although I like hiking, I'm afraid of heights :)
With all of that in mind, we're trying to decide between basing ourselves in Ortisei, Selva or S. Cristina. I'm leading towards Ortisei. Sound right?
In some ways, I guess we're looking for the "equivalent" (I use that term very loosely) of Grindelwald in the Dolomites.
Thanks for your time. Laura
