Cortina d'Ampezzo is one of the most popular places for winter sport in the Alps. It was picked as the site for the 1956 Winter Olympic Games with good reason. Many VIPs and stars spend their holidays here and ski the slopes of Cortina d'Ampezzo. But Cortina also has something to offer during the summer: Amazing mountain tours through the Dolomites, countless climbing areas and breath-taking flora and fauna that make the hearts of hiking enthusiasts skip a beat. A shopping tour along the Corso d'Italia makes for a special highlight any time of year: There you can purchase designer fashions, shoes, jewellery, antiques and hand-made crafts.
