Walking within the town is the obvious option, as it is relatively compact. There is also local public buses, the small orange ones which will take you in the very immediate vicinity. Connections with Dolomitibus at the bus station will take you to the surrounding towns and outlying areas, as well as to the ski areas, but do so rather infrequently. Please note skibuses do not run from 10am to 2pm, and stop at 5pm.

Taxis are generally available and can be called, some areas have a taxi stand like the bus station, or Passo di Falzarego. Taxis are VERY EXPENSIVE in Cortina, expect to pay 3 eur per kilometer and they typically charge from Cortina to where they are picking you up and then to your destination. I.e a trip from Pocol ski lifts to Cortina an 8km trip will cost 30 eur.

Based on convenience and the cost of a taxi, you are best advised to bring a car.

  • The Cinque Torri is a fine group of extraordinarily shaped boulders on a mountain in a more or less straight line so that from a distance they may be thought to resemble a row of towers. A chair lift makes this superb viewpoint accessible to anybody, though only climbers can enjoy some of the attractions.
