London, UK, 29th November 2017 – Dolce Hotels and Resorts(R) a hotel brand which inspires and delights guests by turning experiences into extraordinary moments, today announced Trails of Discovery, a programme designed to help guests explore and draw inspiration from their surroundings. Leading through breath-taking scenery such as winding vineyards, historic landmarks, and even a UNESCO World Heritage site, each trail has been carefully curated in partnership with local influencers, in order to provide guests with an insider’s view of awe-inspiring locations.
