This hike offers a lot of variety. From Cortina, the city in the Dolomites, you hike south to Venice, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Forest paths, panoramic views, vineyards, plateaus, interesting towns and much more await you. Embark on a pleasure hike in northern Italy.

Experience culture and customs in the province of Belluno, wander through the vineyards, where the well-known Valdobbiadene Prosecco is grown and enjoy the Italian flair at an „Aperitivo“ in Belluno and Venice. The route is recommended as a continuation of the hiking trip Kitzbühel – Three Peaks. The hike runs along marked mountain and hiking trails.
