The weather at Calalzo Di Cadore and the surrounding Dolomite Mountains are very unpredictable. Although the Dolomites are known as "The Sunny Side of the Alps", it can be sunny at one instance and start raining within a short time. As with all mountain areas, the mountains are best clearly seen during the mornings and evenings when there is usually less cloud cover. Autumn and winter are the best seasons for clear skies because of less clouds and precipitation, summer being a bad month because the humidity and hot weather tends to build lots of clouds onto the mountains, thus covering them from sight.

Luggage and bags: It really depends upon what activities you intent to enjoy. Either backpack or luggage is fine. There are no cobble stones in Calalzo which create havock for rolling stock, simply smooth pavement. Your choice.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Temperatures change quickly in the mountains. When the sun hides behind the mountain tops, the warmth of the sun's rays disappears. Be prepared to change into long sleeves if the occasion calls for it. On the other hand, when it is hot, a lightweight t-shirt is appreciated.
There are few level surfaces in Calalzo, so wear appropriate footwear. If you intend to follow the trail, good solid hiking boots are a must .
Photo Equipment: We noticed one photo supply shop with a limited display of photographic equipment in the window. I'm sure batteries would be available, as would film. I wouldn't count on purchasing an additional memory card however.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Climbing gear is yours for the asking, as well as a substantial selection of hiking footwear.
Miscellaneous: Numerous maps of the area are available, including very detailed hiking maps.
