San Candido in the Dolomites

September is the best time to visit the Dolomites

We are often asked about the best time to visit the Dolomites: the first answer is always that any time is good to visit the Dolomites! The second answer is that September is a good time to visit Italian mountains and here below we listed the main reasons.

Take it easy and relax

In Italy holidays are very popular in Summer especially in August, this means September is not overcrowded. There are fewer people on holidays therefore restaurants are not fully booked, you find parking more easily in Innichen – of course our clients can have the parking lot reserved.

When you visit the Dolomites in September there are no crowds at the mountain huts, like the Rifugio Baranci hut and the Three Peaks huts; September is also a good time to visit the Lake of Braies, one of the most instagrammed places in Italy, and the popular town of Cortina d’Ampezzo.  Generally speaking September is the best time to visit for relaxing and finding peace.

September is good for your budget

The month of September is not high season in Italy, therefore holidays are more affordable. Rates are more competitive and often on bargain. In our Boutique B&B in the Dolomites we have special prices for your September holidays! Check out our website.

50 shades of September

What we like of September are the colors: they are the perfect match of the bright colors of Summer and the warm colors of the upcoming Autumn. Mother Nature starts preparing for the new season and the woods are full of life. The colors of the Dolomites outside of our B&B rooms in San Candido are breathtaking, as well as the sunsets at the Lake of Braies and the dawns over the Three Peaks.

In addition the weather on the Dolomites in September is perfect: days are sunny and warm, but not too hot. In Innichen rainy days of September are about 6 and temperatures go from 18°C to 7°C.
