Content: After a short walk in the woods, lasting about 15 minutes, you arrive at Lago delle Tose, a small body of water known since Roman times for its thermal characteristics and the benefits of its waters. After about 10 minutes, an area opens up where the pines are more sparse and a lot of water flows on the rocks, giving shape to the famous Cascatelle di Lagole. It is a beautiful sight: the low slope of the rocks allows you to cross the waterfalls with ease, but if you walk another 5 minutes you will come to see the small Tose lake, a natural pool formed in a rocky pool. Here you can also take a dip (if the water is not too cold), because these hot springs have healing properties.

Content: The next stop of the day was Val Comelico, in particular the village of Padola. In addition to the beautiful village to visit, in summer it is the excursions through the paths in the woods that attract the interest of tourists, often attracted by the splendid Dolomite sceneries. I recommend the thematic trail TRÒI DLI MASCRI (PATH OF THE MASKS). If you do not want to follow the paths you can reach, by car, some of the neighboring villages. I recommend Sappada!

Content: We decided to spend a good part of this day at Lake Braies, one of the most beautiful lakes in the Dolomites and in Italy. The atmosphere in this place is very suggestive, the color of the water is unique and seeing the boats floating is truly magical. I recommend arriving early, this place is visited every day by thousands of people. To reach it, unless you go in low season, you have to leave your car in a parking lot and get on a paid shuttle bus. Look for the "Segheria" car park, it costs € 9 for the whole day, from 8 am to 4 pm. Given the very high number of visitors, in the summer months, it is mandatory to book parking in advance between 10 July and 10 September. The cost of the shuttle bus ticket is € 10, round trip, I absolutely recommend that you book the ticket online as well, to secure your seats. Alternatively there is a path to walk which takes about 3 hours (but not worth it). Once you arrive you can rent a boat and float on the lake, a unique experience to do absolutely! The cost is a bit high: € 29 an hour, € 19 half an hour (the cost is per boat), but it is absolutely worth it. After returning the boat, I also recommend that you take the path that goes around the lake, so you can see it from every angle!

Content: We stopped here for lunch, it says it's a butcher shop but inside you can find everything (it's more of a rotisserie), including homemade sweets. The thing I recommend most to eat is a speck sandwich. Here, in fact, they make you sandwiches at the moment: they cut the fresh bread they produce (you can also choose the type of bread you prefer) and fill it with freshly sliced ​​speck. This area of ​​Italy is particularly famous for the production of speck and it is really delicious! Inside and outside you will find tables to eat what you buy, otherwise there is a square with many benches right in front.
