We are staying in Venice (Dorsodura) this Sept. and wanting to spend a day exploring the Dolomite Mountains ( Sesto region). Can we...

...catch a train from Venice or should we rent a car for the day? Can anyone highly recommended a specific hiking trail to do?


City: Venice

Region: Veneto

Country: Italy


You can go by train but it is a very very long journey with lots of different changes (at least 8 hours journey each way) . You can go by car, but the journey is still around 3 hours drive if you do not get stuck in traffic. I know there is a bus which leaves from Piazzale Roma for the Dolomites but I am not sure in which place it goes too. Look at Sesto website for more info:
That part of the Dolomite is quite far from Venice, there are areas of the Dolomites which are much nearer and just as beautiful. You can take a train or a bus to Cortina for example.
