Excursion to the Dolomites Mountains

The appeal of the Oriental Alps
length 10hours approx with Lunch Available: Everyday (if weather permits)



In the very heart of Alps chain, the enchanting Dolomites' landscape represents a real treasure.

 

Here Nature shows her most beautiful face and, in each season, expresses herself under a different light. In this delightful atmosphere it's easy to forget about everything and, suddenly, to leave the city life behind us, enjoying moments of absolute pleasure and relax. This region enchants us with its high mountains as Catinaccio group, Mt. Sassolungo, Mt. Marmolada, Tofane group and the Tre Cime di Lavaredo (three picks of Lavaredo), and impresses us with its untouched nature, the green pastures, charming woods, crystalline lakes and natural parks.

We would like to give you a bite of all this with a full day excursion leaving from Venice that's only 150kms away from some of the most characteristic spots of Dolomites' area. We leave Venice – Piazzale Roma with our private Coach and within 1 hour and half we reach Belluno. Here, our local guide leads us through the beauties of the town centre; Duomo Square and the Cathedral (according to the Holy Mess on Sundays), Market Square and Martiri Square.

The elegant small town of Cortina D'Ampezzo is 70kms from here and we will visit its centre with a pleasant walk along the main street and surrounding. Stop for lunch in a good restaurant with a four courses menu, drinks not included. After lunch, departure to the near Misurina Lake; a vast mirror between the high mounts that seems to rise from the lake's waters. Stop for a while to admire the beauty of nature.. and if you want, to have a coffee around the lake.
Auronzo di Cadore and Pieve di Cadore are two small centres rich of charm and are just a short drive away from Misurina Lake. Pieve di Cadore had an important function in the ancient times, due to its location right in the meeting point between Piave Valley and Boite Valley. For this reason we are not surprised to find here an ancient Roman building very well preserved together with other important findings. We will also enter the house of the famous painter Tiziano, being Pieve di Cadore his home-town, to admire many works of art (today the interior of the House is a museum). Visit to the Parrocchiale (the Church) hosting the sole Tiziano's Altarpiece existing in Belluno area. At the end of the visit, return to Venice – Piazzale Roma.

Please note that the below prices do not include any transportation from the hotel / city centre to Piazzale Roma in Venice. If clients prefer to be transported and assisted to the departure point we would be pleased to quote it with a little supplement.
