What to see and to do at Cortina

For days you wish would never end.

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.
