Dolomites summer holidays in Belluno
The Dolomites frame the picturesque town of Belluno in northern Veneto. The landscape attracts scores of hikers and skiers annually, and there are numerous centres to hire equipment circling the town. However, holidaymakers may wish to combine their Italian break in the mountains with a trip to the stunning city of Venice, securing Belluno as a great base for a holiday of contrasts. The city of Padua and the smaller town of Conegliano are also closely situated to Belluno. From the Piazza dei Martiri, walk to the Duomo, built in the sixteenth century and an exemplar of the yellow stone architecture characteristic of the town. Or travel to the beautiful Torre Civica, built in the twelfth century, or the Porta Ruga. And at the end of the day, retreat to your villa to watch the sunset over the snow-capped peaks.
