In this chapter we are talking about the mountain groups that surround the city of Cortina d'Ampezzo, through green valleys and high rocky walls, the Ampezzo Dolomites.
The Ampezzo Dolomites are among the most beautiful and impressive mountains of the Veneto region and owe their name to the territory of Ampezzo, which follows the course of the Boite river and its tributaries. A part of this valley is protected by the Regional Natural Park of the Ampezzo Dolomites.
These majestic mountain ranges, partly protected by the Regional Natural Park of the Ampezzo Ampezzo, are accessible through several paths. A part of this valley is protected by the Regional Natural Park of the Dolomiti d'Ampezzo. Among the most striking and hard paths we remember the Passo Giaù, which opens like a magnificent balcony on the valley of Cortina d'Ampezzo, the Tre Croci Path that descends along the imposing Monte Cristallo and the Cimabanche Path that descends from Dobbiaco.
At the center of a wonderful valley, surrounded by these enchanting mountains, we find Cortina d'Ampezzo, a renowned winter and summer tourist resort of world renown. Along the Ampezzo Dolomites, we can also find the lively town of San Vito di Cadore, whose territory includes part of the massifs of Sorapiss, of Croda da Lago and of Nuvolau and the suggestive municipality of Auronzo di Cadore, which includes part of the massif of the Crystal.
