From Venice: Dolomites, Lake Misurina, and Cortina Day Trip

1. From Venice: Dolomites, Lake Misurina, and Cortina Day Trip

Enjoy a memorable day exploring Europe's most beautiful range of mountains. During the day you'll make numerous stops at scenic viewpoints, walk around lakes, enjoy a Cortina city tour and walk on level terrain up in the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, from where you can enjoy a splendid view over this majestic mountain range. The beauty of the Dolomites is in their diversity. It will feel as if you have travelled from one mountain range to another such is the stark variation in scenery. During your Dolomites tour, you'll see glaciers in the distance, soaring peaks, emerald green lakes surrounded by forests of pine and larch with reflections of the mountains mirrored on their calm waters, and typical Tyrolean villages clinging to the mountainsides. At the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, at an altitude of 2,360m (7,500 ft), you'll enjoy one of the best views of the mountains, where you can gaze out across a myriad of peaks and valleys as far as the eye can see. Visit the cosmopolitan Cortina and walk around its delightful centre to peruse the many picturesque shops. And after a fulfilling day spent in the Dolomites, sit back and relax on the way back to Venice through the ever-changing scenery of the mountains illuminated by the late afternoon sun.

Simone, our guide, excellent!! knowledge, humor, engaged with our group the whole day. We had enough time in each spot to enjoy and take it all in. He made us all comfortable, and interested in where we were. The tour was our last trip in Italy before going back home. we can't recommend this tour and Simone enough!! Grazie Mille!!!

Simone was a great driver and guide! Very entertaining and gave good suggestions and information. The scenery was spectacular. Some significant winding roads, so be mindful of possible car sickness. But had frequent enough stops for short walks and photo opportunities. Would highly recommend this tour!
