Top Ten Italy Classic Adventures

Ski, Ride, or Raft Cortina
By Valerio Diotto

Set in the middle of a wide valley just two hours from Venezia, Cortina is like a jewel surrounded by beautiful mountain peaks. It's beautiful here any time of year, but winter is the only time to experience Cortina's legendary alpine skiing. Fifty-two lifts bring skiers to 140 km of trails, from easy to expert-only. Cross-country skiers have 130 km of cleared trails to navigate.

Cortina's "No Limits Center" offers adrenaline sports for every season, from snow-rafting in winter to shooting through rapids on a "hydro-speed" raft in the warmer months.
