Private Venice Day Tours & Excursions to the Dolomites have been designed to provide visitors the opportunity to enjoy breath-taking views of the most stupendous mountain, lake and valley scenery that the Dolomites and Italy have to offer.

Your expert driver-guide will provide you with an intimate experience of Italy's most beautiful mountain range. Our carefully designed itinerary features scenic back-roads with plenty of photo-stops for all the different photographic opportunities these mountains afford. During the day, you'll be truly amazed by the contrast between nearby Venice and the snow-capped peaks of the Dolomites.

Spending as much time as possible off-the-vehicle to enjoy the scenery of the mountains, you will drive along roads with only a few twists and turns, through a land of towering peaks and spires, contrasted by peaceful valleys sprinkled with lively villages. Visit Pieve di Cadore, the birth place of Titian, an enchanting mountain village where we'll discuss the history and legends of the people of the mountains, and their unique culture.

Throughout our Private Venice Day Tours to the Dolomites & Cortina your guide will stop at spectacular view points that will guarantee you an up-close and personal impression of the Dolomites. At every photo-stop, it will seem as if you were in a completely different range of mountains. Along with wild flowers in bloom, rustic farmhouses and the ringing of cow bells, our Dolomites tour will provide you with a day full of memories.

The Highlight of the day will be a drive-up to the Tre Cime di Lavaredo at an altitude of 7,500 ft. Standing directly below these towering peaks that are the most famous in the Dolomites, you will be able to gaze out across a myriad of ranges and peaks that make up the Dolomite Mountains. Take an easy walk along a level trail to further appreciate the beauty of the mountains.

Our Private Venice Day Tours of the Dolomites also include a visit to the cosmopolitan ski resort of Cortina. We will see the old Olympic Ski jump and admire the setting of the Dolomites most famous town before making our way back to Venice.

In the late afternoon, following scenic roads through ever-changing countryside, as we make our way back to Venice. Passing several major peaks along the way, you'll have plenty of time to savour the different colours of the Dolomite mountains as they are illuminated by the late afternoon sun.

My Mum and I did this day tour recently, was a really enjoyable day out with amazing sights to see. The Driver and Tour Guide was great, gave plenty of information, had a good sense of humour and treated us all really well. The whole bus (8) got along great I recommend doing this tour for any age.

We had an excellent tour to the dolomite mountains and Cortina. Our friendly driver and tour guide Yustin, was very professional and made sure we received value for money. He spoke English well and gave us very useful information about the area. He knows absolutely the best spots to stop for us to take magnificent panoramic pictures. He knows the best restaurants and coffee shops as well! He is always willing to assist by taking photos of the couples and groups as well in order for us to treasure our memories. I highly recommend this tour - what an experience.

The Dolomites Day Tour was a brilliant way to end our 3 night stay in Venice - the sights of the mountains were absolutely breathtaking, and our tour guide Justin knew exactly where to bring us and stop the car fro some really good shots of the place! The service was excellent and they were extremely kind in acceding to some of our requests, and the guide was really friendly too. Highly recommended!

We have just returned to the USA and can report that we had two excellent tours with Avventure Bellissime when we were in Venice. The first was a two hour ghetto tour which was very informative and given by a woman who was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the area. We were very pleased with that tour.

The second tour was a full day private tour from Venice to the Dolomite Mountains for four of us which was beyond our expectations. Marco picked us up at the cruise terminal where we had just arrived and took us straight to the tour. He made stops along the way where we could see views of lakes and mountains as well as have a coffee. His English skills were very good and he was a pleasant and friendly person to be with. Marco also brought us to a really good restaurant where we had a very good meal just beside a lovely lake. We were very pleased with the tour, the vehicle and Marco.
