The Dolomites region (Belluno, Trento, Bolzano, Cortina D'Ampezzo, …) is a UNESCO World Heritage Centre and is possibly one of the best places on earth. It is equally magical in all 4 seasons and there's plenty to see and do, so ensure you have at least 2 to 3 days to explore everything.

Where to stay
To fully experience what is like to stay in the Dolomites, there's no better place to stay than in the Queen of the Dolomites – Cortina d’Ampezzo, a regular site to the Ski World Cup.
We stayed at what we consider the best place to stay in the region: the Hotel Ambra Cortina, the romantic fashion boutique hotel of the Queen of the Dolomites.
It's perfect location right in the center of Cortina d'Ampezzo allows you to sightsee the city without needing a car.
And if you want to explore further, Hotel Ambra Cortina is located in between the famous Sella Pass and Lago di Braies, making it easy to visit these iconic locations! See the photos below and check them out here!
When to visit
The beauty of this region is that you can visit it whenever you want and choose if you prefer a more greener scenery or a whiter one.
When the weather is warmer and there's no snow, you'll find several people hiking the many trails on the region or even biking. When the winter season hits and the snow starts to appear, this region transforms it self on a ski and snowboard resort.
