Exceptional outcrop conditions in theDolomites of northern Italy allow appreciation of facies variability, depositional geometries, and platform-to-basin relationships at seismic scale that developed during a complex sedimentary evolution. This itinerary focuses on two Triassic microbial carbonate platforms, the Latemar and Sella, providing examples of key concepts that are fundamental for the interpretation of subsurface geologic bodies. By comparing these twomicrobial platforms, a variability of facies architectures is highlighted. The relatively easy access, the exceptional exposure conditions, and the variety of carbonate platform types that grewin the Triassic of theDolomites make this region an ideal field geology laboratory for training geologists working in exploration and in addition provide potential outcrop analogs of subsurface carbonate reservoirs.
