A Fine Lunch Spot


…on our Italian Dolomites Trek.

Built in 1903, and restored after WWI by the C.A.I. (Italian Alpine Club), the Rifugio Vicenza invites hikers to warm the bones and refresh the palate. The sunny patio and warm hearth offer strength to intrepid hikers marching ever-upward through a collection of jagged peaks and splintered spires called the Sassolungo group. The Sassolungo group, also known as the Langkofel, is one of the most striking collection of peaks in all of the Italian Dolomites. Notable peaks in this group include the Sassopiatto and the Sassolungo.

We enjoy the dramatic views from this mountain hut which extend up to the peaks and outward across the Alp di Siusi, Europe’s largest alpine meadow. The espresso isn’t bad either.
