What to expect

During the summer season (April 1- November 14) on your small group Venice day tour of the Dolomite mountains, enjoy a memorable day exploring what many people believe to be Europe's most beautiful range of mountains. During the day, you'll make numerous stops at scenic viewpoints, walk around lakes and visit the hometown of the famous Renaissance painter Titian.

Spend some time in Cortina and enjoy a walk on a 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. Throughout these excursions from Venice, you'll make frequent photo stops, and it'll feel as you though you have traveled from one mountain range to another due to the stark variation in scenery.

During your day, you'll be able to 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.

These excursions from Venice also include visiting the cosmopolitan Cortina and a delightful alpine village that was the birthplace of Titian. After a fulfilling day spent in the Dolomites, sit back and relax as you'll return back to Venice through the ever-changing scenery of the mountains illuminated by the late afternoon sun.

During the winter season (November 15 until March 31) – after a visit to Cortina, where you'll have time to walk around the center and shop, you'll make your way to the picturesque Braies Lake, known as 'the Pearl among the Dolomites lakes'. It’s set in the beautiful Pusteria Valley and considered to be one of the most beautiful South Tyrolean lakes. Here, you’ll have the opportunity for an easy walk or to enjoy the beautiful sight from one of the coffee shops by the lake while sipping a hot chocolate.

Next, you'll head to San Candido, one of the most beautiful South Tyrolean villages in the Dolomites. The focus is on its pedestrian zone with its many colorful shops and the hustle and bustle of people. You can stroll around and taste local specialties like speck, local cheeses, the mouth-watering Canederli dumpling – a traditional first-course recipe handed down from one generation to another – and for those with a sweet tooth out there, don't miss out on the delicious Strudel cake. From November 23 until January 6, you’ll experience the San Candido Christmas Market. All the stands are located in pedestrian areas, surrounded by Christmas decorations. You’ll be captured by its cosy and magical atmosphere.
