HOLIDAYS IN VENETO
WHAT BETTER OCCASION FOR A FANTASTIC HOLIDAY
Summer proposal for athletes and families. Take this opportunity to arrive a few days in advance in Auronzo di Cadore to visit Misurina and the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, and plan a short break after the competitions to visit Venice and the Veneto region.
THE VENETO REGION
The Veneto is a region located in north-eastern Italy and has Venice as its capital city. The Veneto territory ranges from the Dolomites to the Adriatic Sea, from Lake Garda to the Adige, Brenta and Piave rivers.
These environmental characteristics allow the development of a thriving economy linked to the productive sectors of excellence, to great food, to internationally acclaimed wines and to comprehensive touristic facilities (mountains, sea, lake).
Auronzo di Cadore is among the most famous Veneto tourist resorts and is situated on the shores of Santa Caterina lake. Surrounded by dense woods and by some of the most stunning Dolomite mountains (just think of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo UNESCO Heritage), Auronzo is the ideal destination for a relaxing and active holiday. Auronzo di Cadore is a municipality in the province of Belluno in the Italian region of the Veneto. Auronzo is located about 120 kilometres north of Venice and about 50 kilometres northeast of Belluno.
Breathtaking panoramas, pure and fresh air, a nature that is incontaminated. Outdoor activities are combined with history and culture – this is Cadore. In Pieve di Cadore you breathe art. Visit the birthplace of the famous painter Tiziano. See the development of glasses at the Eyeglass museum. Go to Cibiana, the Painted Village, and you will be charmed by the stone houses decorated with large murals that narrate the history of the inhabitants of the crafts and local traditions. At the foot of the majestic Antelao and of the Marmarole, mountains included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, you will find Calalzo di Cadore.
Venice is a unique city. Surrounded by the Venetian Lagoon, it owes its splendour to the palaces built on water. The incredible charm of a city where every corner is steeped in history, architecture, culture and art. Venice and its islands (Murano, Burano, Torcello) attract millions of tourists from all over the world.
The Dolomites are a mountain range lying in the eastern section of the northern Italian Alps. They are considered spe- cial because they are essentially composed of dolomite rock. This gives the Dolomites their pale colour, making them fascinating and mysterious, but also causing enrosadira (alpenglow), the phenomenon where the peaks, bathed by light at dawn or sunset, take on a red colour. In 2009, the World Heritage Committee inscribed the Do- lomites in the UNESCO World Heritage List, citing the beauty of their unique landscape and geological features.
