| Hotel in Corso Italia in Cortina d’Ampezzo within easy to reach of the Dolomiti Superski ski slopes
The elegant structure of the 4-star Hotel Cortina is situated along Corso Italia, in front of the nineteenth century bell tower of Cortina d’Ampezzo, in the center of the shopping area, close to the ski-bus stop bound for the Dolomiti Superski ski slopes and skiing school.
In the pedestrian area are the international high-fashion boutiques, antiques, numerous artisan shops and the most popular locales of Cortina; a little further, skiing enthusiasts can purchase the best equipment at the shops in the center.
Sport in Cortina plays a leading role. During the winter season the ski run hosts World Cup races, while the great tradition that accompanies the ice hockey championship ignites the enthusiasm of a lot of fans; not to mention the high-speed bobsledding challenges, an exciting and unpredictable discipline.
Cortina is at the center of the Ampezzo Valley, a paradise surrounded by high peaks, forests and streams that descend silently into the valley, a natural oasis protected within the Dolomites National Park and the area of Lagazuoi - 5 Torri, where it is easy to see mountain goats, Golden Eagles, marmots.
Around Falzarego Pass are some of the most interesting hiking trails, paths for mountain biking, rock climbing; in this pristine area, rich with tourist services, we suggest spending a night in the mountain hut, admiring the mountains, a hair's-breadth from heaven, rose-tinted by the sunrise. A truly enchanting moment.

During the summer season, folklore and traditional festivals are frequent in Cortina. From the numerous weekly rustic festivals, up to the Bands Festival – a triumph of music, traditional clothing and gastronomic specialties that blankets Corso Italia – igniting a contagious enthusiasm that will not fail to amaze and cheer you.
