The Alpe Di Siusi - it's a large mountain meadow which reminded me of the first view of Hyrule in Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Gently rolling landscape with a lot of areas visible, many paths to take and explore.
You can get here by cable car from Ortisei and just start walking. The area is so large it has its own town (Compatsch) and bus service.
For best photos I recommend going up here when it's partly cloudy - not completely clear day, not completely cloudy day- you'll get the somewhat misty morning shots and it goes well with the rugged mountains.
Strongly recommend this. If there's just one thing you do while in Val Gardena, it should be this. It's family friendly - I saw plenty of bikes and prams and families walking about. It's a very popular place for a good reason.
