  • Take memorable photos at the best viewpoints spots along the way

Begin your Dolomites day tour by getting picked up at Venice's Piazzale Roma, the large square in the city center. Drive for about 90 minutes to your first stop at Pieve di Cadore, a charming historic town with a beautiful viewpoint overlooking the lake of Centro Cadore. Then, go to Auronzo and enjoy a photo stop at the lake dam where you can sometimes see the water rushing through gates. Afterward, enjoy a long stop at Lake Misurina, also known as the “Pearl of the Dolomites”. Walk around the gorgeous lake and have lunch at a restaurant serving local food. In the summer you can rent a small boat to get around the lake or ride the panoramic chairlift to the Col de Varda Viewpoint (not included). Next, head to Cortina d'Ampezzo, the village that will host the next Olympic Winter Games in 2026. Have a walk through the most prestigious and well-known street of the Dolomites, the Corso Italia pedestrian area. Get dropped off back in Venice at the end of your tour.
