Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy

Cortina d´Ampezzo is a paradise for collectors of altitude metres! The most spectacular passes of the Dolomites – including the view to the Marmolada Glacier and the 3.000 metres high rock giants Tofana and Cristallo - surround this picturesque town. Starting from Cortina d´Ampezzo, ambitious racing cyclists can take on a new tour into the mountains every time on six days. Would a bit more be even better? The queen’s stage offers seven passes in just one day: Falzarego, Col di Lana, Pordoi, Sella, Gardena, Valparola and Falzarego again. A once-in-a-lifetime must for any racing cyclist.
