We had a quick breakfast, checked out, got our car – parking overnight was €15.20, filled up gas €37 (Slovenia gas was cheaper than Italy) and from Ljubljana, we drove 4 hours to Cortina d’Ampezzo where we stayed as the 1st base to explore the magnificent Dolomites. The Italian Dolomites have been on my bucket… Read More Tre Cime National Park, Dolomites
