Where is the best place to stay when hiking in the Dolomites? Is Cortina d'Ampezzo a good place to act as a base? Do you need a car to get there? Or is it possible to get there by train?

1 venice airport to cotina ( train vrs bus having trouble finding summer schedule )
2 Cortina to north trailhead (I think there is a local bus service)
3south trailhead back to Cortina ( hitch hike or flag a bus I would rather not hitchhike)
Hi we are a family of 6 adults and 2 kids. We are looking for a nice ski resort in Europe from mid of January for a week. We want a happening place" not a boring one. Since we are all young . We have heard about cortina in Italy , that it's a nice place to go . Is it ? What is the top and best 5 stats hotels and chalets near their downtown ?
Hi, can you recommend some easy day hikes with great scenery,
and can you recommend which lifts are the best in summer?
Thanks! Gail McKoon
We will have spent two weeks in the Dolomites, and will need to travel from Cortina to Venice to fly back to the US. What is the most efficient, cost effective way to travel from Cortina to Venice?
We are planning a trip from Venice to Cortina to Bolzano on March 30.
Are there any guided bus/car tour available which will start from Venice and drop us off at Bolzano?
Or is this trip do-able with public transport?
Appreciate any help!
We are going skiing in Cortina next January 26. The schedules for next year's buses are not available. Does anybody know when they went on a Saturday in January 2011?
We're going to Italy in July and will appreciate any suggestions that will help get the most of our short time around the Dolomites.
Day 1 - Drive rental car up from Venice, hopefully arriving in Cortina around noon. Check-in, eat lunch and we'd like to quickly find a trail or two to enjoy (for a little exercise, but more for scenery) during the afternoon. Get back to hotel around sunset. Maybe Lago Misurina or Paso di Giau?
Day 2 - We want to leave Cortina by 8am and drive thru the Dolomites and arrive in BELLAGIO/LAKE COMO BEFORE SUNDOWN, so I think we will need to be in Bolzano and hit the autostrada by 3pm, giving us around 7 hours for Dolomite fun. Any suggestions on the best route to take in the Dolomites/Alpe di Suisi? Again, we're wanting great, but quick, scenery with opportunities to get out of the car for some short, easily accessible hikes that can be squeezed-in the tight time frame. A couple of meadow hikes surrounded by the peaks sounds great. Concerns: Roads closed during the day in Alpe di Suisi? Best route....."48 to 241" or "48 to 243 to 242"? Convenience and security of trailhead parking?
Thanks in advance for any great ideas and info!!
We will be staying in Cortina d'Ampezzo in early to mid September. Any recommendations on hotels, restaurants, bike rides, or hikes in the area.
Iwillbe staying in venice on the9/10/11 March and I will like to visit cortina dampezzo for one day. What is the best and easy way by train/bus, transport schedule, and prices.
Is there any bus going Grande Strada delle Dolomiti via Sellajoch , Passo Pordoi , Passo Di Falzarego to Cortina (in June).
Any website , timetable ?
I completely forgot to update everyone who had been so kind to me in answering my questions! My husband and I have been living in San Vito di Cadore since November. While we have had our ups and downs with hockey, we LOVE San Vito and Cortina! Obviously this isn't a question ... just wanted to say thanks!
My husband and I are moving to Cortina with our 1 year old son. Are there many professional photographers in town that we might hire to take family photos?
Does anyone have any details on how often the trains and buses travel between these 2 places. I need to travel from Venice (or Mestre) on the Tuesday morning before Xmas, and return to Marco Polo Airport by 20:00 hours on Saturday 27th.
Train would be preferred as I suspect the bus journey will be very long
I'm planning to do via ferrata Ivano Dibona from Capanna Rio Gere, and then with chair lift to the Sonforza..... and then on foot to make descent on the other side to the Rifugio Ospitale (which is on the road number SS51) and then to take a bus near that Rifugio Ospitale which will drive me to the starting position on Cappana Rio Gere where I'm planning to leave my car.
I have been searched on the net for bus information but I did not find that line I have found some buses which goes from Cortina d'Ampezzo to Dobiaco via Misurina but this is not what I'm searching....
Please can you tell me what is the bus line which goes from Dobiaco on the road number SS51 and passes that Rifugio Ospitale and than via Cortina to Capanna Rio Gere????
I'm going to Cortina for Christmas, fly on 22nd Dec. I'm wanting to book a nive restaurant for the evening of 25th Dec. I'm thinking of either El Toula or La Tavernetta.
Does anyone know roughly how muich El Toula is price wise? I've been on the website but the menu keeps crashing and I can't view it.
Can anyone reccommend any other restaurants for a Christmas meal??
I am thinking about a ski trip next year.How long does the ski season run in the Dolomites? When is the best time and when should I avoid going?Should I fly into Milan or Venice? does the train run to cortina or do I have to make arrangements for ground transportation? I know...lots of questions :)
-Thanks if you can help-Chris
I had planned to drive from Venice to Cortina and spend one night. I wanted to see the scenery and enjoy the town a bit. However, I'm finding most hotels closed during this time. My question is: when I find a hotel will the town be closed up with nothing to do? I'm looking at May 1-2 in 2006.
Thanks so much.
I'm travelling to Cortina in February and have no idea how to get there I know that there is an airport at Fiames but no-one appears to fly there Venice looks the best place to fly to (87 miles away), but can anyone tell me how to get from the airport to Cortina please? I didn't really want to hire a car Any help appreciated Best wishes Andy
