    Tre Cime

    Tre Cime

    Fondest memory: From one of the cabl-car trips there was a lovely view over to Tre Cime - one of the most famous symbols of the Dolomites, if not the whole Alps. There are actually more than 3 peaks, but from the north one can only see the 3 tallest ones.

    Cortina's bell tower

    Favorite thing: The church of St. Filippo & Giacomo was built in 1775. There are sculptures by Andrea Brustolon, paintings by Francesco A. Zeiler, Giuseppe Zanchi, Luigi Gillarduzzi and Giuseppe Ghedina. Between 1851 and 1858 the tower bell was built. This is today one of the symbols of Cortina.

    view of Cortina

    Favorite thing: The Rifugio Faloria is situated at 2123m at the top of the Faloria cable car and looks out onto the entire Cortina basin. It has a wide terrace ideal for sunbathing and has a handy restaurant for lunch.

    Cortina and its church

    Favorite thing: Cortina has a picturesque square, dominated by the white church spire and flanked by two massive mountain ridges: to the east lies Cristallo (9,613 feet) and Faloria (7,690 feet); to the west, Tofana (9,317 feet) and Pocol and Socrepes (7,487 feet) areas.

    Cable car Trips

    Cortina cable-car

    Favorite thing: Riding the cable-cars is always a favourite thing for me :-))

    An ascent to the summit of one of the two main cable-car trips requires two changes en route and an uphill ride through three separate cable-car segments. The first station is Col Druscie, at 1,753m (5,752 ft.); the second is Ra Valles, at 2,447m (8,027 ft.) and the top is Tofana di Mezzo, at 3,214m (10,543 ft.).

    Moutain Scenery

    cortina snob? no thats my own coat ;-)

    Favorite thing: Cortina has wonderful views of the Tofane group and Monte Cristallo and even as non skiers we enjoyed going up the cable-cars here to enjoy the scenery and watch the skiers. Tip - buying a days ski pass was cheaper than buying separate cable-car tickets. Rumour has it that you can hire fur coats here and pretend to be a snob!

    Favorite thing: If you are at Cortina d'Ampezzo during summer, you will be able to see the various colourful flowers in full bloom. This is one of my fondest memories of visiting this famous alpine town in Italy :)

    Tofane

    Fondest memory: Gazing up at Tofane from the second cable-car station was just awesome. I'd really like to come back here in the summer sometime.
