What a week! Very challenging yet plenty of down time. The scenery is so amazing. The hikes were not too steep but the mileage per day let us know we worked out. Hotels and restaurants were top flight. All in all it met my expectations and more. - L.L. - Minnesota


After arrival at the Venice Airport, we will arrange for a private shuttle to take you to Cortina d'Ampezzo, site of the 1956 Winter Olympics and an exciting year-round resort. We'll meet at the hotel around 2:00 pm that afternoon.


The evening before your departure, we will arrange for a private shuttle to take you to a Venice airport hotel. If you wish to extend your stay in Venice, please contact our office and we would be happy to help make arrangements.
