Overview of Cortina D'Ampezzo

Cortina is known as ‘The Queen of the Dolomites’. This small mountain town in the Ampezzo valley at 1,220m has a history steeped in tourism, mountaineering and of course, skiing – including being the host of the 1956 winter games. Often associated with glitz and glamour, you might well catch a glimpse of a celebrity or two on the streets or slopes.

But don’t let the allure of people watching distract you from the real reason to visit – the skiing. From the centre of town, hop on the Cortine-Mandres cable car to access the slopes of Faloria – an area of gloriously cruisy blues and reds. Cortina’s largest ski area is Socrepes, which links with the neighbouring village of Tofana and features easy-accessed, equally agreeable blue and red pistes.

3 Things We Love About Cortina d’Ampezzo

  1. Access to the Dolomiti Superski area, with its 1,200kms of piste
  2. VIP spotting in the oh-so-vogue bars and restaurants
  3. The more quintessentially Italian vibe, in contrast to most of the other Tyrollean villages in the ski area
