Cortina d'Ampezzo, is in Italy
The most famous, fashionable and expensive Italian ski resort. In summer you may well find all camp sites full - meaning FULL.
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.
SKI! You have a choice of 2 cable cars from the town, and the bus to the other areas in the Cortina Ski Region -Tofana by the Ice Arena on the north end of town, which services Tofana area which is the highest elevation and usually has the best conditions -Faloria and one by the bus station on the south end of town that can access Faloria and Cristallo.
