    By this step the Dolomites winding roads to reach Cortina rather than the Badia Valley rather than the Marmolada. It is also possible to climb the cable car of Lagazuoi. There are trails suitable for experts to people who like to walk. There are restaurants, bars, souvenir shops.

    Meanwhile say that parking is free, just 20 minutes from Cortina ... with shops and refreshment. There is also a lift then do various walks ... We walked towards the Lagazuoi Mountain Lake, along the way we saw a woodchuck he called his small, then there were people that went up the mountain wall (I think with an instructor), we saw some old trenches of war up to a war Museum 15-18 .... interesting!
