In summer, Cortina is a true paradise for hikers, climbers and mountain-bikers alike, supported by high quality facilities and services.
Cortina d'Ampezzo is an attractive high-altitude town in the northern extremity of the Veneto region of Italy. It's in the Dolomites (le Dolomiti), part of the eastern half of the Italian Alps, and is a popular and well-equipped base for a full range of mountain activites. In winter the town is a busy skiing destination, with several cable cars and access to many ski runs. In the summer months the town is a good hiking centre for keen walkers, and also for energetic mountain bikers. Even if you don't fancy the rugged vie ferrate up in the rocky heights or the demanding mountain footpaths, there are still plenty of pleasant excursions using cable-cars and buses which will take you to spectacular viewpoints and mountain restaurants.
