Cortina d'Ampezzo [IT]
In summer, dramatic sunsets silhouette the gigantic ruptures of earth and stone, the soft verdure of the Ampezzo Valley lying snugly within these finely etched mountains.
The colors of the landscape change constantly as the sun moves across the sky, the azure lakes reflect the hard-edged peacks. The delicate green meadows ablaze with wildflowers versus the unforgiving, jagged rock formations make for an intriguing dichotomy.
Easy Walkers are in for the time of their lives-seven days of walking in the incomparable beauty of the Dolomites and casual evenings strolling the pedestrian street in the elegant town of Cortina d'Ampezzo.
Why this venue:
Foreign tourists soon followed, spreading stories about the wonderous sights around Cortina, and the town became famous, in winter for its incomparable skiing, in summer for its mountain climbing and hiking.
