Review: Inspiring book... I like the Sunflower series of walking books as they always contain lovely photographs that make you want to get out there right now. This one was no exception, and I found the alternative versions of the walks helpful, as many of the routes would not otherwise be suitable for drivers. The Dolomites are stunning and you don't need to be exceptionally fit to get away from the other tourists. When we went in June there was still some snow on the higher routes so we decided we will go back next year to have a go at the walks we could not tackle this time. We will be taking this book with us. --(TA, Amazon)
