Topic - Via Ferrata holidays?

Kemics - on 29 Dec 2013
Im planning on doing a via ferrata with my dad this summer.

My dad is fairly strong/active but has no climbing experience. But loves hiking. I'm currently thinking of going to the dolomites because just looking at photos, it looks the most exciting!

I'm thinking I could take a short length of 8.5 mm rope or something so I could quickly rig a top rope for him if a section looks tricky.

I've been googling trying to find information, but there doesn't seem to be much out there. Either everything is in French or it's a commercial site for via ferrata guides. Do you need to pay for guides or access? or is it possible to just do it independently (looking at just the amount of metal work they must be very expensive to set up!)

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good website, guidebook or simply ideas for where to go?

thanks!
