Lake on the Dolomites

The Dolomites Alps lie in the Belluno province, in the north Veneto.

It’s a renowned tourist destination, where art, history and culture create a perfect union with the splendid surrounding nature.

Here, a fairy-tale landscape with many small villages, imposing mountains, splendid valleys and silent woods will fascinate you.

The Dolomites, a Unesco site since 2009, is an imposing mountain range, from which the Marmolada Massif, Mount Antelao, Mount Civetta and the Tre Cime di Lavaredo stand out.

Visitors have the chance to admire landscapes of extraordinary beauty, with large valleys close to the imposing small rocky walls and large lakes.

In summer, these mountains are tinged with intense blue, streams, rivers and waterfalls, with their clear and thundering waters and dense forests.

In winter, instead, the only touch of color is a white blanket of snow creating a surreal atmosphere.

If you wish to discover the interesting historical and artistic heritage of the Dolomites area, then a tour of villas and castles, abbeys and monasteries, archaeological sites, museums, cities and ancient villages is the alternative holiday for you.

The Natural Park of the Belluno Dolomites include a wild and fascinating nature, with rocky peaks and enchanted valleys, crossed by courses of pure water.

The town of Feltre is a splendid walled city, with an important historic heritage: the ancient Alboino’s Castle Tower dominates the entire valley.

The “queen” of the Dolomites Alps, the town of Cortina d’Ampezzo is one of the most famous ski resorts in the world, with a lively social and nightlife.

Above the valley, the Cadore-Auronzo-Misurina area with the splendid lakes of Santa Caterina and Misurina, down the imposing Three Peaks of Lavaredo, famous among mountaineering enthusiasts.

The extreme northern part is occupied by the Comelico and Sappada mountain communities.

These are two charming and welcoming places where to spend a quiet and relaxing holiday, in an evocative naturalistic environment.

These nature giants are part of the “Dolomiti Superski”, a true snow amusement park between the Veneto and Trentino regions, with 1200 km of slopes to fly on skis.

In the province capital, Belluno, the first thing that attracts our attention is tranquility and silence.

In this surreal atmosphere, you’ll admire buildings and architecture from different eras.

Porta Rugo is a typical medieval building, while the ancient Piazza del Mercato (Market Square) is the place where the ancient Roman military station was located.

Piazza Duomo houses the Rectors Palace, the Cathedral and the Palazzo dei Giuristi (Lawyers Palace), seat of the Civic Museum.

The Dolomites are home of mountain sports: alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, climbing, snowboarding, snow bob, ice skating, curling, competitions with snowshoes, trekking, but also hang-gliding and paragliding for even more intense emotions.

Children and adults will find a trip on a dogs-pulled sled with a musher (instructor), guiding you to discover these beautiful places.

Mountain bike fans can enjoy many itineraries on rocky slopes, in green pastures, in dense forests or along banks streams.

In the lush green of woods, beside imposing rocky walls, there are many small and pretty lakes, such as the Misurina, with the opportunity to practice water games, such as sailing, canoeing and windsurfing.

In the splendid natural scenery of Valgrande, there are the Dolomites’ Thermal Baths, used for curative or beauty treatments.

December is a month of celebration, sounds, lights and colors! A tour of Christmas markets cannot be missed.

Small wooden houses festively decorated host stands displaying artisan and gastronomic products as well as many original gift ideas.

In Feltre, you can watch the spectacular Palio: the four city districts compete in archery, rope-pulling and horse-riding.

The “Golden Cup of the Dolomites” combine history, engines and nature. These three great passions give life to an important historic cars competition on the hairpin bends of the Dolomites.

During the Dolomites holidays, don’t miss tasty cheeses, fine meats and excellent cold cuts.

In this cuisine, simplicity and genuineness are the main ingredients.

Above all, enjoy polenta as a main dish or as the perfect companion of a slice of Casél dell’Agordino, Contrin, Nevegal or Casalingo d’Alpago, big names of the local dairy production.

Furthermore, the pastin is a recipe of crushed meatballs, made with a mixture of sausage, and then cooked in the pan, or on the grill.

Moreover, don’t miss a slice of the delicious Cadore or Belluno speck from the excellent Alpine farms meat.

Taste the Lamonese risotto, defined as the “dish of poets”, with the tasty Lamon beans and the particular aroma of laurel.

Enjoy the polenta locals prepare with various meats, as well as the kodinzon, made with dried apples from local crops, is cooked to obtain a puree and then dried.
