queen of the Dolomites
Cortina d’Ampezzo, or simply Cortina, is a gem of sheer beauty in the middle of the Italian Alps, just two hours North of Venice.
Set in the wide and sunny Ampezzo Valley, the small town is surrounded in all directions by some of the most scenic peaks of the Dolomite mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
In the summer, it offers hundreds of kilometres of hiking trails, over thirty via ferratas, a golf course and then MTB, road biking and climbing routes. In the winter, it provides legendary ski slopes, the Olympic ice stadium, a vast array of snowshoeing and ski touring options as well as cross-country skiing pistes in the Natural Park.
