    Statue at Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy

    I saw this statue at a small garden at Cortina d'Ampezzo next to a river. As it was raining during that time, I actually took the photo quickly and move on. Any VT members know more about this statue? If so, perhaps you can give me more information :)

    Tai di Cadore

    Tai di Cadore is a very net place situated on the road between Belluno and Cortina. Here you can see a number of characteristic wooden houses with large verandas all turned into the direction of south.
    There must be a grat feeling sitting on those verandas on a bright sunny day and enjoying in the magnificient view of the nearby valley.

    La Villa

    La Villa is one of the best ski-resorts in the Alta Badia region, which is situated north of Cortina d'Ampezzo. The nature in the surroundings of the place is just beautiful. I would like to revisit this place in the early autumn because it must be of stunning beauty coloured by the rich autumn colours.
    There are marked walking paths all around the place and you can immersed here in endless peace of the nature.

    bobsled

    In Cortina you can run on the olympic bobsled track. It is a really though experience: you reach 130 km/h and you stand an acceleration of 4G! In the Cortina Adrenalin Centre they gave you helmet and clothes. Then you have a run on a competition bobsled 4 places, together with a driver, a brakesman and another passenger. From the half of the track you reach the same speed of the World Championship races. The track is 1.350 m long and the run last around 57 seconds.
    It is a really impressive experience. The cost is around 80 Euros.
