From Venice: Cortina and the Dolomites in One Day

Don't miss a chance to see the Italian Dolomites, some of the most beautiful mountains in Europe. In just one day, travel from Venice to see the most famous towns and lakes in the area, including Pieve di Cadore, Tre Cime di Lavaredo, Cortina, Lake Misurina, and Lake Auronzo. Your first stop will be at Cortina d'Ampezzo, a beautiful town in an alpine valley of the Dolomites known for its winter sports and jetset crowd. Wander the thousand-year-old streets and have lunch in one of the town's excellent eateries or take the Cortina-Faloria cable car to fully appreciate the beauty of the Ampezzo Dolomites. Journey on to Lake Misurina, adjacent to the town of Cortina and a lovely place for a walk in the open air. Known as the pearl of the Dolomites, the lake is not only one of the most beautiful Italian lakes, but is also said to have therapeutic properties for those suffering from respiratory illnesses. A legend has it that the lake was a gift from the fairy of Mount Cristallo to the daughter of King Sorapiss, Misurina, who desired a magic mirror. The mirror (of water) was granted her on the one condition that the king would be turned into an imposing mountain, thus explaining the formation of the Sorapiss mountains which form a dramatic background to the lake. Next up is Tre Cime di Lavaredo (only in summer season), some of the most famous mountains in the Alps. Let your guide take you to a particularly well-situated terrace in the park from which it is possible to admire a panoramic view of the Dolomites. View the trenches dug into the mountain during the early days of the First World War, scars which are still visible today. Finally, stop at Santa Caterina Lake in the town of Auronzo. Relax by the artificial lake formed by the damming of the Ansiei River before returning to Venice. Please note that the itinerary may vary according to the season and snow conditions.

It was a wonderful experience on the snow because in our country doesn't snow. Stefania was a very friendly tour guide/ driver. Was very informative all the way. Picked and dropped off on time with a very comfortable and clean van. Although it was quite a long way, it's worthed for its beautiful scenery. Enjoyed every minute especially walking on the snow and riding the snow Mobil. Excellent Stefania thank you!

Max is a very good driver and nice person. I enjoyed the winter, but was just a little bit disappointed because the clouds were to low to see the full beauty of the perks. May be the next time. It is worth.

Stephanie was so good to be our guide. She has a lot of information about anything. About Dolomites itself, til about the history of World War’s site during our journey. You’re the best Steph!

Everything was perfect. Many thanks Ms Stefania for this wonderful tour👏👏

Wonderful activity. Guide Elisa is super attentive and helpful. We love it!
