Overview

Trade city life in Venice for the Dolomite Mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Skip the headache of renting a car and focus on the scenery on this hassle-free tour, which stops at Lake Misurina, Lake Santa Caterina, and the alpine town of Cortina d'Ampezzo. With views of the impressive Tre Cime di Lavaredo peaks, this tour includes both guided and independent elements, as well as a small group of just eight people.

Please note: From November 15th-March 31st this tour will visit Braies Lake and San Candido instead of Lakes Santa Caterina and Misurina. From December 23rd to January 6th you'll also visit the San Candido Christmas Market.

What to Expect

Make your way to the central Venice meeting point, where you'll hop aboard a comfortable minivan with your small group of just eight people. With your driver/guide at the wheel, you'll be able to appreciate the scenery on the way out of the ancient city and into the Northern Italian countryside. No Italian road trip would be complete without a stop for some espresso (own expense) in the quaint village of Pieve de Cadore, known in Italian history as painter Titian's birthplace.

Move on to Lake Santa Caterina, where you'll stop for scenic views and photo ops, and Lake Misurina, known as one of the most beautiful lakes in the area. Take in the views of the dramatic peaks in the distance, called the Tre Cime di Lavaredo.

Pause at a traditional Italian trattoria for lunch (own expense), followed by a guided stroll on some gentle mountain paths. This optional walk includes in-depth commentary on the environment, flora, and fauna of the area.

Depart for the chic ski resort of Cortina d'Ampezzo, where you'll have some free time to explore the village, a favorite vacation spot for wealthy Italians.

After a long day of exploring, enjoy not having to read road signs in Italian and simply settle into your seat on the trip back to Venice for drop-off.

Please note: From November 15th-March 31st this tour will visit Braies Lake and San Candido instead of Lakes Santa Caterina and Misurina. From December 23rd to January 6th you'll also visit the San Candido Christmas Market.

WOW! The best part of Italy is a hidden secret

If you are in Venice, you MUST take a day trip to the Dolomite Mountains. They are breathtaking. Majestic views at every turn!

You would have to check with the tour company I recommended directly. I believe they only book up to 8 people; that's how many seats available in their touring vans. (Do ASAP.) Personally, my husband & I book only "small... More
