The Italian Dolomites are a total change of scenery. The Dolomites are a mountainous chain of the Eastern Alps, they belonged for a long time to Austria and each village has two names. In fact, the Austrian culture is still very much present in the Dolomites, whether it is in the customs, the language or the architecture. There are eighteen peaks in the area that rise to 3,000 meters above sea level. The name "Dolomites" was given to them by the French geologist Dieudonné Dolomieu, who identified in some rocks the presence of dolomitic limestone, one of the elements that characterize this mountain range. The dolomite gives the mountains a particular color: white, although at dawn and especially at sunset, this rock takes on colors ranging from pink to intense red. This phenomenon is known as "enrosadira". The region, where the Dolomites nest, borders Austria, Switzerland and Italy. South Tyrol (Alto Adige) used to belong to Austria-Hungary and was awarded to Italy following a victory in the First World War. The capital is the charming little town of Bolzano and don't be surprised that the most common language in the region is Bavarian! (a German dialect). The Dolomites do have an air of small Austria!
