Cortina

Cortina is the most exclusive resort of the Dolomites and represents the best of Italian glamour. Tucked away in a small central area, surrounded by mountains, it has been the setting of many Hollywood films including The Pink Panther, 007, and Ash Wednesday. These mountains offer extraordinary opportunities for real adventures: hiking, biking, rafting, climbing, boating on the clear lakes, and jeep tours along sites of extreme beauty. And to end in style, the local cuisine called Ladina, rich with cheeses, sausages, mushrooms, polenta, wine and grappa… and “dulcis in fundo” delicious pies to regain your energy.

Cortina is the most exclusive resort of the Dolomites and represents the best of Italian glamour. Tucked away in a small central area, surrounded by mountains, it has been the setting of many Hollywood films including The Pink Panther, 007, and Ash Wednesday. These mountains offer extraordinary opportunities for real adventures: hiking, biking, rafting, climbing, boating on the clear lakes, and jeep tours along sites of extreme beauty. And to end in style, the local cuisine called Ladina, rich with cheeses, sausages, mushrooms, polenta, wine and grappa… and “dulcis in fundo” delicious pies to regain your energy.

As always we suggest a walk along Corso Italia, the main street. But beware: stores categorically close at 7:30 pm. Even if it is a tourist location, the natives follow the mountain habits.
