Take a tour of Dolomites Mountains in Belluno, Italy -- part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
Italy is famous for its hilly wine-country and coastal views, as well as its beautiful mountain ranges.
The Dolomites, which are part of the Alps, are Italy's jewels.
The steep, grey slopes of these large mountains make them a very scenic backdrop to the Italian landscape.
The dolomite is a type of carbonate rock that gives this part of the mountain range its unique shape and pale hue.
They are considerable peaks, with well over a dozen mountains climbing over 10,000 feet high.
Because of their height and location, the Dolomites have become popular with skiers and snowboarders in the winter and hikers, cyclists, and paragliders in the summer months.
