Things to see
The highest summit of the Dolomites is the Marmoada with its 3343 meters in height but in fact, the Dolomites boast 18 different summits reaching higher than 3000 meters. As such, this region offers visitors many breathtaking panoramas over the mountains, valleys and clear water lakes. It is unsurprising then that there are several legends related to the Dolomites Mountains, most of them involving kings, princesses, fairies and elves.
While the population in the Dolomites is technically Italian, they consider themselves Tyrol people. In this region there is also a small population that speaks Ladin. Ladin is a language composed of a number of dialects, related to Swiss Romansh, and spoken almost uniquely in this area.
