Arabba, in the Fodom Valley, offers intense emotions not only during the summer or winter, as it is easy to imagine, but also during the autumn, that more intimate and peaceful "middle season" that has now dampened the great holiday vibes of summer and has not yet worn its winter appearance.
The mild climate of autumn gives an alternation of intense colors and a thousand facets with leaves that pass from vivid and intense shades of green to the warmest and fiery shades of red, orange and brown against the background of a clear blue sky.
This phenomenon is called foliage and there is no better place to discover it than Arabba in the heart of the UNESCO Dolomites.
