There are numerous activities for children at Cortina; a visit to the First World War open air museum combines open air activities with culture in an exciting stroll through history. The mountains surrounding the Ampezzo valley were a backdrop to the fighting between the Italian and Austro-Hungarian armies. Today, thanks to a significant restoration of trenches, tunnels and recovered artefacts, you can visit in complete safety the museums of Lagazuoi, 5 Torri, Sasso di Stria and the Tre Sassi Fort.
Among the things to visit at Cortina, we recommend the “Mario Rimoldi” Museum of Modern Art, which houses a precious collection of works by the most important Italian artists of the twentieth century. Next to the Stadio Olimpico del Ghiaccio (the Olympic Ice Stadium) is the unmissable “Rinaldo Zardini” Palaeontological Museum, dedicated to the fossils of the Dolomites, and the Ethnographical Museum of the Regole d’Ampezzo, which tells the story through objects and illustrations of the silvopastoral tradition of former times.
is also in an excellent central position for those looking for a convenient base for starting out on cable-lined routes, walking or mountain bike trips; Parc Hotel Victoria is the place to come back to, where you can relax and make use of our services ranging from wellness facilities to the restaurant service.
For keen mountaineers, the 5 Torri is undoubtedly the most important rock face in the area. There are as many as 108 routes marked on these faces, with levels of difficulty ranging from 2° to 8°. For complete beginners, both adults and children, the locality of Po’ Crepa (Pocol) has a natural rock face recommended for aspiring mountaineers.
Just 3 kilometres from Parc Hotel Victoria lies Cortina Golf: a nine-hole course where golf enthusiasts can try out their skills over a high-level technical route steeped in a panorama that is unique in the world
