WHERE ARE THE ITALIAN ALPS

The Italian Alps sweep in an arc from Monaco in the west to Trieste in the east, covering the northern tip of Italy.

They are made up of 3 main areas. The western side is the southern end of the high Alps: a dramatic mountainous playground bordering Switzerland. The central region comprises large lakes framed by smaller hills, while the northeast section is the Dolomites – jagged rocky peaks framed by lush alpine meadows. One of the best things to do in the Dolomites involves strapping on your hiking boots and heading off on a scenic adventure. Read about all our favourite hikes in the Dolomites.

The Italian Alps are also easily connected via Venice in the south and Innsbruck (Austria) in the north, both of which make great bases for an itinerary in the Dolomites.
