After a difficult hike the previous day, we decided on the easy Trail # 348 to Colbricon Lakes. It was a very rewarding return on investment for such a pleasant and easy walk. We passed only one couple on the walk, but arrived at the refugio at the lake to find it full of chattering happy Italians eating their lunch.... More

My first day in the dolomiti and we went to Passo Rolle as you can ride gondolas and chairlifts to the top. Breathtaking views and an amazing history about the brave Italians who fought in WWI to keep this area Italian!

Visited this pass a few times for sunset photography and hikes. Quiet in June. There are a few hotels, restaurant and shops. Mainly closed but will get busy come end of June. Good starting point for hikes, especially the hike to Baita Segantini.

Return at half past the hour in the afternoons. great snow up here, shorter runs, but nicely connecting across... More

The pass lies within the Parco Naturale Paneveggio - Pale di San Martino. The pass road goes through some restaurants and albergos. All were closed when we visited in September 2015. It offers magnificent views of the mountains and deep valleys. A great place to stop and enjoy the views.

Take the Gondola to the top of the mountain and take the hike down. It is a beautiful hike. I might recommend take the lower Gondola down if you are not an avid hiker...although you would miss some amazing views.

Driving from Bolzano (Bozen) to San Martino di Castrozza.leads one over the Rolle Pass, which is dominated by the "Matterhorn of the Dolomites," the Cimone della Pala. Clouds frequently obscure the view of this stunning mountain, but when visible, the view is simply awesome.

Great place to learn. Very friendly people and very helpful. I stayed at the Hotel Venezia which is right on the slopes. Really good value. Free wine served by the jug at lunch and evening meals.
