  • Snowy Winter offers a unique atmosphere, but in spring I prefer it, endless meadows and colorful flowers.

  • Yesterday we climbed the mountains by car to Passo Giau. The Giau Pass is a high mountain passage in the Dolomites in the province of Belluno in Italy. It connects Cortina d'ampezzo with Colle Santa Lucia and Selva di Cadore. It is located in the centre of a vast mountain pasture at the foot of Nuvolau and Dell'averau from which you can easily reach Mount Pore. Even in spring and summer you will have these views. Yesterday it was 5 degrees Celsius there.

  • Beautiful, and incredible views. Absolutely stunning. Check their webcams online before making the drive to ensure the clouds are covering the view otherwise you’ll be disappointed. Best time to visit is in the summer months on clear sunny days.
  • One of the most beautiful mountain passes . Enjoy it
