Why I love Arabba

While driving through Northern Italy, I stumbled on Arabba, a small mountain village nestled in the Dolomite Mountains.

Having previously only been to Italy's major cities, visiting Arabba gave me a wonderfully intimate look at one of the country's unspoiled little corners. Entering the village, I was stunned by its natural, unspoiled beauty and couldn't seem to take enough pictures of the landscape.

The close, personal nature of Arabba was highlighted by the warm smiles and greetings I received from locals as I walked through the town's narrow, charming streets and found a cafe for lunch. The fantastic mountain scenery surrounded me every step of the way. Because it was summer, the only missing element was the snow. I'll be sure to return for those winter views as well.
