Cortina d’AmpezzoCortina d'Ampezzo is an Italian municipality in the province of Belluno, in Veneto. Nicknamed the "Queen of the Dolomites", it is the largest and best-known of the 18 municipalities that make up the Ladinia, as well as a renowned winter and summer tourist resort, which hosted the 1956 Winter Olympics and is the scene of numerous international sporting events linked to the mountain and winter sports. Once part of the Republic of Venice since 1420, it was until 1511 an integral part of the Cadore, of which it constituted one of the ten “hundreds” (ancient county divisions). When the Cadore was invaded by Maximilian of Habsburg at the beginning of the War of the League of Cambrai, the Venetian army, in regaining it, renounced to occupy the Ampezzo area to head towards Friuli instead.
Cortina d’AmpezzoOne of the most desirable destinations in the Dolomites, Cortina d’Ampezzo has three ski areas connected to each other by a free ski bus service, for a total of 85 km of ski runs with 95% of programmed snow-making. There are also many opportunities for excursions with snowshoes to penetrate, without too much difficulty, uncontaminated environments to be fully discovered. Nordic skiing enthusiasts can enjoy training at the local sports centre, "Fiames Sport Nordic Center", which offers various runs of different lengths. There are also innumerable activities focusing on wellbeing that allow you to relax after the fatigue of sport. The only Italian resort among the 12 destinations of the Best of the Alps, Cortina is also the queen of cultural, social and food and wine entertainment: many proposals are in store for those who love to experience the mountains in “slow mode”, even without skis on their feet.
