Where to eat and stay

Cinque Torri

Largo delle Poste 13, 32043 Cortina

Local specialities – including spätzle and casunziei – join excellent pizzas on the menu in this lively, convivial restaurant in the centre of town.

Enoteca Baita Fraina

Via Fraina 1, 32043 Cortina

Try the broad range of Veneto wines and plates of cured meats, cheeses and finger food in the cosy, wood-panelled wine bar. Come at aperitivo time (from 5pm) for some superior snacks.

Jägerhaus Agriturismo

Via Cadin Di Sotto 24/25, 32043 Cortina

About 2km north of Cortina’s centre is this friendly agriturismo (with rooms) that serves refined versions of local specialities using, of course, organic ingredients from its own farm.

Hotel Cortina

Corso Italia 92, 32043 Cortina

It’s hard to be more central than at this venerable four-star, which is right on Corso Italia, beside the bell tower. Rooms have pleasingly traditional décor of pine walls and furnishings, brightened by colourful fabrics. Some have balconies overlooking Corso Italia. Doubles from €252, with breakfast included.
