Description

Escape the crowds of Venice and take a day trip to the Dolomites, with stops at lake Santa Croce, Pieve di Cadore, Cortina, lake Auronzo, lake Misurina and Cortina. See fabulous scenery and get plenty of opportunities to take epic photographs. Pass through tunnels with astonishing views of canyons and valleys, which appear as if from nowhere. The scenery in this region is quite simply some of the most breathtaking in Europe. First stop at lake Santa Croce to admire the peaks of the Dolomites reflected in the crystalline waters and then at Pieve di Cadore for a short walk and maybe a cappuccino. We drive to the picturesque lake Auronzo, passing through enchanting mountain villages. Continue your trip towards lake Misurina, here you will have the chance to stroll around the lake with an optional lunch break and admire the mountain peaks of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo and spectacular backdrop of Sorapis and Marmole. Otherwise take the panoramic chairlift to reach “Col del Varda” at 2106 meters (tickets not included, to pay on spot) and breathe the fresh mountain air, it will reward you with yet more unforgettable views of the Dolomites. After lunch (not included), we will finally arrive at the last stop: Cortina d'Ampezzo, nicknamed the “Pearl of the Dolomites,” you will have approximately 30 minutes free time to stroll around the town, and take in the picturesque views of the mountains. Cortina d’Ampezzo will host the 2026 Winter Olympics Games, the famous international multi sport event, also know as Milano - Cortina 2026. With eyes full of beauty and cameras full of memories to cherish, we will then catch our car ride back to Venice.
