Situated on the Boite river, in an alpine valley, Cortina d’Ampezzo is a popular winter sport resort known for its skiing trails, scenery, accommodation, shops and après-ski (after skiing) scene, and for its jet set (international social group of wealthy people) and aristocratic European crowd.
I stayed this hotel for 2 days, it was comfortable stay, the room was clean and staffs were helpful and friendly.
I put the luggage in the room and went out exploring the town of Cortina d’Ampezzo.
The Basilica of Saints Philip and James, dedicated to the Apostles Filippo and Giacomo, patron of the country, is home to the parish and the deanery of Cortina d’Ampezzo.
The Church of Saints Philip and James was built between 1769 and 1775 on the site where two previous churches had been the thirteenth and sixteenth century, it is the pride of the community.
There is a medieval stone bridge close to the restaurant. The arch bridge is very beautiful. I walked over the bridge after lunch.
Cortina d’Ampezzo is very quiet and picturesque town. The town nestled among the autumn leaves.
