  • Overview & Itinerary

    Overview

    Enjoy the scenic beauty of the Dolomites, arguably Europe’s most beautiful mountain range. The soaring snow-covered peaks, the deep valleys of pine and the emerald green lakes are a wonderful compliment to the man-made beauty of Venice. From the Tre Cime Di Laveredo, enjoy what is considered the best view of the Dolomites. A visit to the ski resort of Cortina is also included in this tour.

    Itinerary

    Travel in an air-conditioned vehicle from the meeting point and accompanied by an English-speaking guide, you will set out from Venice into the stunning beauty of the Dolomites.

    Your guide will provide you with an intimate experience of Italy's most beautiful mountain range. The itinerary features scenic back-roads with plenty of photo-stops for great photographic opportunities.

    Take a brief pit stop in the village of Pieve de Cadore where you may enjoy tea or coffee (direct payable), known as the birthplace of Renaissance painter Titian.

    Continue your tour with stops at Lake Santa Catarina and Lake Misurina surrounded by the towering peaks. Enjoy a packed lunch (direct payable) at a local trattoria in an idyllic off-the-beaten-track location.

    Spend some quality time strolling in the pedestrian path amidst the green pastures and lofty mountains in Tre Cime di Lavaredo.

    In the afternoon you will visit to the cosmopolitan ski resort of Cortina. You will see the old Olympic ski jump and admire the setting of the most famous town of Dolomites before making our way back to Venice.

    The tour returns to Tronchetto, Venice at around 6:00pm.
