Geocache Description:

La regina delle Dolomiti, il salotto alpino d'Italia: è Cortina d'Ampezzo, cuore geografico e turistico delle Dolomiti e di tutta la montagna veneta. Cortina (1224 m) si distende nell'assolata conca ampezzana, raggiungibile da ogni direzione attraverso magnifici Passi, quali il Falzarego, il Giau, il Tre Croci.

L’Osservatorio Astronomico del Col Drusciè sorge sulla cima del colle che sta ai piedi del massiccio delle Tofane, a 1780 metri di quota. Gli fanno da contorno le fantastiche cime dolomitiche della conca ampezzana: Tofane, Cristallo, Sorapis, Antelao, Cinque Torri, Croda Rossa, Pomagagnon, solo per citarne alcune. Il paesaggio, la limpidezza del cielo e la comodità di accesso (solo 15 minuti di auto da Cortina), sono i requisiti principali che orientarono i soci dell’Associazione Astronomica Cortina a sciegliere il Col Drusciè come sede del loro osservatorio.

Vi sono tre cose belle: una notte fiorita di stelle,
una vetta candida di neve….

If people start talking about the ‘Queen of the Dolomites’, what they’re actually referring to is Cortina d’Ampezzo, which hosted the Winter Olympics in 1956. The natural surroundings of this charming Dolomites venue are incomparably beautiful. For mountain climbers, the steep rock faces and jagged ridges of the Dolomites are nothing less than dream destinations. In summer there are wonderful hikes and walks to be enjoyed along the expansive meadows and mountain pastures, while skiing holidays in winter are blessed with the rays of the Mediterranean sun. Cortina d’Ampezzo (1224 m) and its marvellous surroundings frequently supply an impressive backdrop to major films, but what’s even more important, it’s also the ideal allyear- round setting for sports enthusiasts and those in search of recreation because of its great tradition and experience in tourism. A place to feel good in.
