Full description

Escape the crowds of Venice and take a day trip to the Dolomites, with stops at Cortina, Misurina Lake, and Auronzo Lake. See fabulous scenery and get plenty of opportunities to take epic photographs. Pass through tunnels with astonishing views of canyons and valleys, which appear as if from nowhere. The scenery in this region is quite simply some of the most breathtaking in Europe. Upon arrival in Cortina, nicknamed the “Pearl of the Dolomites,” you will have approximately 90 minutes free time to stroll around the town, and take in the picturesque views of the mountains.

Weather permitting, you will also be able to take the cable car up to Faloria, which overlooks the town of Cortina from its lofty 7,000-foot high mountain perch. Continue your trip towards Lake Misurina, taking the toll road up to outstanding peaks of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo. At 7,740 feet (2,360 meters), it will reward you with yet more unforgettable views of the Dolomites. Take time to stroll around and breathe in that fresh mountain air. Alternatively, break for an optional lunch, and admire the mountain peaks and spectacular backdrop of Sorapis, and Marmarole. After lunch, drive to picturesque Lake Auronzo, passing through enchanting mountain villages as you head back towards Venice, and your final drop-off point.

Simone, our guide, excellent!! knowledge, humor, engaged with our group the whole day. We had enough time in each spot to enjoy and take it all in. He made us all comfortable, and interested in where we were. The tour was our last trip in Italy before going back home. we can't recommend this tour and Simone enough!! Grazie Mille!!!

The private car tour allowed flexibility, personal attention and constant interaction with the driver. Stefani, our driver, was very knowledgeable, professional, personable and very safe driver on the winding roads. We stopped at many different view points for photos and learned about the unique character of the region. HIGHLY recommended.

Of course the scenery was stunning! The driver did an excellent job and even though he was not serving as a guide, provided us with useful and interesting information when we asked. The trip is listed as 8 hours but it actually ran 10 which all in the van agreed was too long. Would encourage the provider to manage time expectations. BTW Get Your Guide provides the most detailed instructions for the meeting point which was so helpful.
