Italian Dolomites, driver's heaven

Just got back from a week holiday with the 355. We went to the Italian Dolomites (Bolzano) and kept driving all week with another 355 and 964 RS. It was perfect! The best roads ever, quiet & twisty, great views and enthousiastic people. Pushing the 355 was very rewarding, found out it's limits are beyond my driving skills. I managed to scared myself a few times when sliding a bit in wet & snowy conditions. What a kick, got to do this more often. IMHO the best way to get away from work, traffic jams, e-mails, mobile phones etc.etc. gotta love it!

Wow. Absolutely stunning. Never seen snow on a F355 before. You may have inspired a trip for next spring

Thanks for your replies. If you ever want to go there, fantastic roads can be found in the are of Bolzano, Merano, Trento and Cortina D'ampezzo.

In the cities the restaurants and shopping is great too (nice too know if someone with more interest in that area is joining you)
