Belluno - holiday between urban life and nature
Belluno is the capital and biggest city of the homonymus
province of Belluno. What gives Belluno its special flair is the
fusion of nature and city. Nature and city blend perfectly into
each other. Belluno won a ranking for the best ecological system in
2007 as well as in 2008.
Belluno is a pleasant and ideal holiday resort for people who
want to enjoy nature but don't want to miss the comfort of
a city. The city lies between the river Piave and Ardo. In
the background the impressive Dolomites chain Schiara (2565 m) towers into the
sky. In the South of Belluno we have the skiing
area Nevegal. It is
ideal for families.
Some monuments you should absolutely visit are the
Piazza Duomo, the Palazzo dei Rettori (1491), the
Palazzo Municipale and the Palazzo Vescovi. Also interesting are
the San Pietro church, the Seminario Gregoriano and the two town
gates in the North and South of Belluno.
In addition to all those cultural monuments we have a
lot of trekking paths and mountain bike
routes in the surroundings of Belluno! Like we said, a
perfect together of nature and city!
