Ampezzo - Holiday in the Friulane Dolomites
Please don't confound Ampezzo with Cortina d'Ampezzo.
Cortina d'Ampezzo is situated in the heart of the Dolomites whereas
Ampezzo is located in the region of Veneto, to be precise in the
sun-blessed Friuli Venezia Giulia at the beginning of Cadore.
Coming from Kärnten in the Dolomites you drive through Ampezzo.
It is situated between Cadore and the alpine pass Mauria
between Friuli and Veneto. Therefore it is an ideal
holiday destination in winter, as well as in summer.
The skiing area Cortina is close to Ampezzo. In the surrounding
forests there are a lot of trekking routes. We
recommend the Valle di Sauris Valley with its beautiful lake as
well as the Val Tagliamento alley. Both offer a huge number of
activities to explore the Alps of Friuli.
By the way, cheeses gourmets are bang on target in
Ampezzo. Cheese production is rampant in this region and
has a long tradition. All of the delicious cheese sorts are worth
tasting! Try it yourself!
