Often considered as the most beautiful mountains in the Alps, the Dolomites have been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 26 June 2009. No doubt their “pinkness” is no stranger to this distinction: thanks to the minerals present in the rocks, at dawn and sunset, the rays ignite the Dolomites to give them a phenomenal color effect, in a palette ranging from pale pink to bright red. It is also the natural architecture of the mountains, their unparalleled aesthetics and their geological composition, which allowed their classification.

It is in this setting that the Natural Park of the Dolomites of Ampezzo, host of the highest and most prestigious mountain ranges: Cristallo, Tofane, the Cime Fanes, Col Bechei or Croda Rossa.

And the Dolomites is home to another jewel: Cortina d’Ampezzo, Queen of the Dolomites, about 2 hours drive from Venice! Surrounded by this mountain range of unique splendor, the village of 6000 inhabitants appreciated as much in winter as in summer shines on sunny days of a bright green and full of activities to discover. It is the most famous resort in Italy and a leading sports city. But make no mistake: of course you can also live the sweetest Dolce Vita!

Terraces at the top

If the call of the summits is felt but you do not particularly want to walk, you just have to take the ski lifts to reach the heights without tiring, while taking full eyes.

The Faloria gondola takes you for example to the Rifugio Faloria for a lunch with a view; while the Freccia nel Cielo gondola on the other side of the city gives access to the Druscié Pass. Whatever the destination, the views over the valley and the surrounding peaks are well worth the trip.

Hiking, miles on foot…

With more than 400 km of trails adapted to all profiles of walkers, Cortina is one of the paradise of mountain hiking. The routes are mostly accessible from the village via the ski lifts and during your day you can stop in the high altitude huts for a well-deserved gourmet break based on local products.

There are many themed hikes: alpine lakes, waterfalls, history and legends… What to discover the most iconic places of the region but also the lesser known nuggets. The Gorges and Lake Federa can for example be a great hiking idea to discover an incredible variety of landscapes, on an easy route of just over 16 km.

On the roads of Cortina, head for the Dolomites passes, often crossed during the Giro d’Italia stages.

Lovers of more leisurely walks will find their happiness on the Lunga Via delle Dolomiti, a cycle route through many villages and taking the route of the old railway line.
