Cinque Torri

Cinque Torri

As I was envisioning Day 5 with its choice of routes (See previous Day 5 post), I completely overlooked one of the “towering” landmarks of the Dolomite region…Cinque Torri…in English, Five Towers. They sit on the southern slope of the Falzarego Pass, one of the most highly traveled areas. Below are two additional views and a video slide show that I have borrowed.

      Yes, it is. I wonder what the photographer did to get that effect.

    Simply Dazzling! Love that first shot especially. And the header – did you take that one?

      That is definitely an artistic shot, but not mine. This is all part of my research as I prepare for my trip which begins in two months.

    Fabulous, enjoy your trip and look forward to seeing your images. I remember the first time I saw the Dolomites, aged 9 on a family holiday…the mountains towering above us as we drove down into Cortina d’Impezzo…..there was a lot of snow around. I’ve only been back once, but just driving through, and that first impression is the one that stuck.

      Thanks for sharing your story about the Dolomites. I am so excited about returning to Europe for the first time in 40 years.
