Cortina, known as the queen of the Dolomites is one of the most sought-after ski destinations in Italy, it became famous as the host of the 1956 Winter Olympics and remains a draw for prosperous snow and sun seekers. The idyllic village center with cobbled streets and church has a wealth of shops and superb restaurants for its visitors to enjoy. 

The Cristallo has a wonderful history since opening in 1901, it served as a military hospital during the First World War and has since hosted film crews and many famous faces.

Cortina d’Ampezzo is recognised as a first class winter sports destination, the ski area has some technically challenging pistes around the town as well as excellent off piste opportunities, but there is more than enough blue runs to keep beginners and intermediates entertained too. The ski area comprises three mountain ranges connected by complimentary bus service. Due to its excellent snow-making facilities the ski season is guaranteed from late November until mid April.
