What I did
Next stop was Val di Fassa, where beautiful villages are surrounded by mountains, before climbing up to Passo Pordoi (with car). In Passo Pordoi there is cable car where you can go to the top of the mountain, but scenery is beautiful at the ground level too.
Then we got lost, we where suppose to go Passo di Falzarego to see the Cingue Torri, but we ended up in Passo Giau. That can happen if you not precise enough with you navigator. But the site was beautiful, I think I got my second best picture from there, so I'm not sad
One word of advice. If you are suffering on motion sickness, take the medication. There is no straight road in Dolomites, but curve after another. We waited two hours in Passo Giau, before my wife dared to enter the car again.
On our way back, we passed the Marmelada, which is the highest peak in Dolomites and covered with snow even in the middle of the summer.
One day is clearly not enough to explore Dolomites. Spend two or three days or why not even a week (especially if you want to hike). But if you are around this area, don't miss the Dolomites. This was clearly my highlight of the vataction
