Mountains and hills
Over 150 ski lifts, more than 450 kilometers of slopes, 29 ski schools with professionals ready to teach the abc of snow sports.
Cortina d’Ampezzo, the queen of the Dolomites, is part of the Dolomitisuperski area with the Civetta. Arabba proposes the grandiose Giro della Sella Ronda, while the Marmolada fascinates even more thanks to the new lifts up to over 3,000 meters and the longest run “la Bellunese”. Val Biois seduces with the tour of Love, a unique itinerary in the world where you can enjoy suggestive landscapes.
Auronzo di Cadore offers slopes both in the center and in Misurina, where a snowmobile ride to the Tre Cime di Lavaredo is not to be missed. Comelico and Sappada, on the other hand, are a paradise for playgrounds and snowboarders. From the slopes on the Alpe del Nevegal, the “Terrace on the Dolomites”, you can admire a spectacular alpine scenery. You can even ski in two protected areas: on Mount Avena, the gateway to the Belluno Dolomites National Park, and on the Cansiglio plateau, in the state-owned forest between the Alpago mountains, an ideal destination for ski mountaineering.
Bassano del grappa
The architectural context of Bassano del Grappa is a dip in art: the streets of the center are adorned with the works of authors such as Palladio, Canova, Jacopo Da Ponte, Marinali and Dall’Acqua. In Bassano there is the oldest Civic Museum in Veneto which is worth a visit together with the suggestive Loggia dei Potestà.
But the symbolic monument of the city is the Ponte Vecchio, built on a project by Palladio who links his image to the epic of the Alpine troops of the Great War. Over the centuries, due to sudden floods, it has been repeatedly rebuilt respecting the original Palladian design each time. At one entrance to the bridge is the small but fascinating Museo degli Alpini which preserves historical documents and period relics inside.
Immersed in the lands of the famous Prosecco wine, Conegliano rises, the birthplace of the painter Giambattista Cima, a treasure trove of architectural and artistic beauties.
The emblem of the medieval heritage is the Castle with the well-preserved Torre della Campana, now home to the small but precious Civic Museum.
The Cathedral, with its original frescoed façade, together with the adjoining Sala dei Battuti, represents the religious and artistic symbol of the city and the altarpiece “Madonna with Child and angels” by the master Cima is kept here.
Abano Terme and Montegrotto
Immersed in the regenerating green of the Euganean Hills park, the Euganean Spas, with the two main centers of Abano and Montegrotto, and the smaller centers of Galzignano, Battaglia and Teolo, are the ideal place to rediscover balance, well-being and beauty.
The secret is in the water, which, starting from the pristine basins of the Pre-Alps, after a long underground journey, during which it is enriched with particularly beneficial minerals, resurfaces in the territory of the Euganean Spas at a temperature of 87 °. This water, unique in the world, is the basis of the maturation, conservation and regeneration process of thermal mud, unmatched for its salty-bromine-iodine properties and therapeutic capabilities.
