Italian TV Series Un Passo dal cielo: 6 locations to visit in the Dolomites

If you like Italian TV series you should watch the popular Un Passo dal Cielo (One step from Heaven) that has been filmed since the first season in the Dolomites. They’re now filming the fifth season and we’d like to share 6 locations of “Un Passo dal Cielo”.

1.Lake of Braies

It’s been the main location since the very first episode: the old hotel’s stables were the headquarter of the State Forestry Corps of Innichen, and the lovely wooden house on the lake was the house of the commander and main character Pietro Thiene, starring Terence Hill for 3 seasons. Thanks to “Un Passo dal Cielo” the Lake of Braies has become very popular in Italy first and then worldwide thanks to Instagram.

2.Piazza San Michele in Innichen

Finally Innichen, or San Candido in Italian, was the set of the fifth season. As a matter of fact, it’s the first tie they’re filming in the main square, even though the plot is about the adventures of the State Forestry Corps of Innichen. In particular Piazza San Michele was the background of some important scenes.

3.Lake of Dobbiaco

The Toblacher See, or Lake of Dobbiaco, is one of our favorite lakes in the Dolomites. It’s been the set of “Un Passo dal Cielo” since the first season and we are happy it was also used to film the fifth season.

4.Lago d’Antorno

Lago d’Antorno is just another lake of the Dolomites, but not so popular as the Lake of Briaes. It’s located nearby the large and beautiful Lago di Misurina, right at the feet of the marvelous “Three Peaks”.

5. Villabassa

The town of Villabassa is in between Braies and Toblach. It’s a small town that was very popular for its healthy weather in the past, when the most important noble families of European kingdoms came to spend their holidays in the Dolomites.

6. B&B Boutique Zenana

We are very excited to include Zenana B&B in Innichen into the locations of the new season of “Un Passo dal Cielo 5″. We hosted the TV troupe for two days, including the beautiful actress Rocio Munoz Morales, starring as Eva Fernandez, together with Enrico Ianello, starring as Vincenzo Nappi the local State Police commissioner.
