I visited this WHS in May 2014. I drove through different mountain passes and could easily discern the Dolomites from the other mountains and high hills because of their jagged nature. I was lucky enough to visit on a sunny day and I didn’t encounter any problems on the road. I tried the minor road SS 669 and I must say that there are pretty villages that are worth stopping at with splendid views of the Dolomites. I particularly enjoyed San Lorenzo in Banale which is marked as one of the most beautiful towns in Italy and rightly so. I brought lunch with me and made a picnic at Lake Molveno which is a natural beauty in itself offering unobstructed views of the Brenta Dolomites. A cable car is currently being constructed so in the near future it will be possible to access the mountain peaks from a closer range directly from Molveno. I suggest spending at least a week if you love hiking (or skiing in winter); you won’t be disappointed!
