Cadore Auronzo Misurina

Description

This is an area which offers both splendid natural landscapes and important, deeply-rooted art and cultural traditions. Here, you will find some of the most spectacular nature, some of the most beautiful corners in the Dolomites, but also some priceless art treasures, which attract crowds of visitors to the most attractive towns and villages in the area. In Pieve di Cadore, the birthplace of the great Tiziano Vecellio (Titian), you can visit the house where the artist was born, perfectly conserved. Just after Calalzo, which you can reach by train, you will find the famous archaeological area of Lagole, with hot springs dating back to Roman times. Near the centre, just minutes from the station, the Ferrovia Hotel is the first stage on our voyage of discovery into the world of local cheeses. From Calalzo, move through the Centro Cadore area on to Lorenzago di Cadore. Many of you will know Lorenzago as the place where Pope John Paul II used to spend his summer holidays, but you will find that the town reserves a number of other pleasant surprises for the visitor. Along the road which leads to the Mauria Pass, you might like to stop off at La Pineta bar, pizzeria and restaurant and sample some of the fine dishes on the menu. Continue on to Auronzo di Cadore, a wonderful little town on the banks of Santa Caterina Lake, where you can try delicious local recipes at La Nuova Montanina restaurant. Finally, go up the valley once more; after the delightful area of Palus San Marco, you will come to Misurina, where this unforgettable route comes to an end in the magical setting of the Malga Misurina.
