Welcome back Lady Liberty!
My family and I just got back from 2 weeks holiday in Italy on Sunday night (big holiday before daughters too old). We did Rome > Tuscany > Pisa > Cinque Terra on NW Coast, Venice on NE Coast > Dolomite Mountains, into Austria for 1/2 day> down to Rimini and San Marino > Rome.
Tolmezzo is just east of East of where we stayed, Cortina, in Dolomite Mountains. Wonderful area, very very dramatic mountains, wonderful area to go hiking, we actually walked through mountain meadow where head bells and then found cows each with a bell and a herder's hut, just like Sound Of Music movie.
Anyway, in that area we didn't see any cheesemaking, going too fast and rest of family wasn't interested. When you get there, the local Tourist Info office should be able to get you info.
Have fun! Don't forget nearby Venice!
