Overview

Trade city life in Venice for the Dolomite Mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Skip the headache of renting a car and focus on the scenery on this hassle-free tour, which stops at Lake Misurina, Lake Santa Caterina, and the alpine town of Cortina d'Ampezzo. With views of the impressive Tre Cime di Lavaredo peaks, this tour includes both guided and independent elements, as well as a small group of just eight people.

Please note: From November 15th-March 31st this tour will visit Braies Lake and San Candido instead of Lakes Santa Caterina and Misurina. From November 23rd to January 6th you'll also visit the San Candido Christmas Market.

What to Expect

Make your way to the central Venice meeting point, where you'll hop aboard a comfortable minivan with your small group of just eight people. With your driver/guide at the wheel, you'll be able to appreciate the scenery on the way out of the ancient city and into the Northern Italian countryside. No Italian road trip would be complete without a stop for some espresso (own expense) in the quaint village of Pieve de Cadore, known in Italian history as painter Titian's birthplace.

Move on to Lake Santa Caterina, where you'll stop for scenic views and photo ops, and Lake Misurina, known as one of the most beautiful lakes in the area. Take in the views of the dramatic peaks in the distance, called the Tre Cime di Lavaredo.

Pause at a traditional Italian trattoria for lunch (own expense), followed by a guided stroll on some gentle mountain paths. This optional walk includes in-depth commentary on the environment, flora, and fauna of the area.

Depart for the chic ski resort of Cortina d'Ampezzo, where you'll have some free time to explore the village, a favorite vacation spot for wealthy Italians.

After a long day of exploring, enjoy not having to read road signs in Italian and simply settle into your seat on the trip back to Venice for drop-off.

Please note: From November 15th-March 31st this tour will visit Braies Lake and San Candido instead of Lakes Santa Caterina and Misurina. From November 23rd to January 6th you'll also visit the San Candido Christmas Market.

Wonder sites but some wasted time

The tour itself is good. They took us to some amazing places. My only issue was that we spent too much time in the towns and not enough time at the places of interest. I would have spent an hour at the lake or the...More

If you go to Venice, don't miss the Dolomites. Incredible!

Tour provided by Adventure Bellissime provides a wonderful full day tour. Our guide, Luca, could not have been more accommodating. He even cleared the clouds and made the sun come out so we had a great view of the Dolomites. LOL He is the best!!More

It lasts most of the day, because the only way to get there is by vehicle. There are many beautiful stops along the way. Well worth the time spent!

We had 6 people for a private tour. When we met the driver there was another driver taking a larger mixed group of smaller parties. You will love the tour! Enjoy!
