Gardone, where we’ve been to a number of times, is a pretty little place and we’ve enjoyed going there. Salo, just a couple of kilometers away, is a bit busier and has a lovely long promenade to stroll along – we decided to give it a go. The weather was hovering around and just above 30 degrees C for the time we were there – it was extremely sticky – and, unlike a lot of hotels, we couldn’t get the airconditioning down to “stun” setting. Lovely room though with a large lake view balcony. Thanks to a great set of people working there too.
It was an opportunity for us to visit The Dolomites – we’d not been up there before. We took a coach from our hotel at 7a.m and went up to Cavalese for a coffee and strudel stop, then Moena for a photo stop and finally up to Passo Pordoi at 2200m where we took the cable car up to 2950m, complete with snow – beautiful, but cold. However, as usual, there were holidaymakers up there just in teeshirts and some folk were sunbathing….
After lunch we came back down and stopped for coffee at Ortisei Sankt Ulrich, then finally arrived back at the hotel gone 7p.m. A lovely day out.
Here’s a few pictures :-
