From Venice: Cortina and Dolomites Mountains Day Tour

1. From Venice: Cortina and Dolomites Mountains Day Tour

Escape the crowds of Venice and take a day trip to the Dolomites, with stops at Cortina, Misurina Lake, and Auronzo Lake. 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. Upon arrival in Cortina, nicknamed the “Pearl of the Dolomites,” you will have approximately 90 minutes free time to stroll around the town, and take in the picturesque views of the mountains. Weather permitting, you will also be able to take the cable car up to Faloria, which overlooks the town of Cortina from its lofty 7,000-foot high mountain perch. Continue your trip towards Lake Misurina, taking the toll road up to outstanding peaks of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo. At 7,740 feet (2,360 meters), it will reward you with yet more unforgettable views of the Dolomites. Take time to stroll around and breathe in that fresh mountain air. Alternatively, break for an optional lunch, and admire the mountain peaks and spectacular backdrop of Sorapis, and Marmarole. After lunch, drive to picturesque Lake Auronzo, passing through enchanting mountain villages as you head back towards Venice, and your final drop-off point.

Great trip to some very picturesque locations in the Dolomites. Our driver/guide Max was excellent and gave us adequate time to enjoy ourselves. it did rain in the afternoon and hence we could not see Lake Misurina in all its pristine beauty, but the first half of the day, the weather was perfect.

Wonderful day out- well worth taking time for Fantastic scenery, great views. Plenty of time to look around independently The guide (Simone) was great, knowledgeable and interesting. The whole day was well organised and run very smoothly- definitely recommended

An impressive tour, the guide Simone super friendly and giving a lot of information during the visit. It's worth it, it's the most beautiful tour I've done so far.
