They span the Italian regions Veneto and Trentino-South Tyrol and thus the provinces Belluno, Trentino and South Tyrol. The imposing mountains and peaks of the Dolomites have been attracting tourists, mountaineers and hikers for quite some time, and in 2009 they were declared a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site.
