Some recommendations from us
Two hours drive from the wedding location, enjoy peaceful hikes with stunning views of the Italian Alps. Make sure to stop at a "rifugio" for lunch. Check out Cortina d'Ampezzo area. We recommend staying a few days for nature lovers to get the most out of this area.
Biking from Dobbiaco 🇮🇹 to Lienz 🇦🇹
This bike path that crosses the border between Italy and Austria is one of the best known and popular in Italy for two reasons: first, because of the ease of the route which is entirely paved and entirely downhill; and second, because of the shuttle trains with bike transport from Lienz, which save you the effort of biking all the way back. As a result, the vast majority of people follow the bike path downhill. More information on www.pustertal.org and www.vacanzattiva.com. To rent a bike visit www.dolomitislowbike.com. Where to stay: San Candido, Dobbiacco, Cortina.
Lago di Garda (Lake Garda) is the largest lake in Italy, it is on the edge of the Dolomites. The luminous environment, temperate climate, and flourishing vegetation – mainly olive and lemon groves, palms, cypresses, oleanders and orange trees – along with the majestic landscapes make this lake the most charming in Italy. .

Firenze is the cradle of the Renaissance. Just a day in Florence? Check out this. You definitely can spend a couple of days here, plenty of things to see and eat! Need a tour guide? Call Laura a friendly Florentine Archaeologist that organizes guided tours around the city.
One hour drive from the wedding location, Venice probably doesn't need an introduction. Ditch the car and take a gondola along the Canal Grande. A must-visit in Venice are the "osteria" or "bacaro", informal restaurants that sell wine and food. We like Osteria al Squero, Osteria alla Ciurma, Rosticceria Gislon.
You can spend a full day walking around the historical downtown and visit museums and parks. Giulio spent several years in Padova to get his degrees at the same University where Galileo taught for many years. Full of historic sites, you can visit the 13th-century Basilica di Sant'Antonio (resting place of St. Anthony), and Scrovegni Chapel, with Giotto’s famed 14th century frescos. Enjoy the late afternoon with an aperitivo in one of the main piazzas.
