Cortina d'Ampezzo is a famous alpine town in northern Italy, surrounded by the beautiful Dolomite Mountains in all directions. This town is famous for it's winter activities and have attracted many tourists during the winter season.
During summer, Cortina d'Ampezzo and nearby alpine towns such as St Vito Di Cadore, Tai Di Cadore, Valle Di Cadore and Calalzo Di Cadore (see my VT Calalzo page) offer the visitors stunning mountain sceneries and relaxing towns, which are so different from nearby Venice and the cities / towns of the Veneto plains such as Padova, Verona, Treviso etc.
If you have the time and interest and is at Venice area, I would suggest that you spend one to a few days at Cortina d'Ampezzo or any of the surrounding alpine towns. This is a very good getaway, and I hope my information and photos will be useful to you.
