Via Ferratas of the Italian Dolomites: Vol 1 (Graham Fletcher, John Smith)


Camping Cortina – This site is mainly geared towards caravans and not tents. Adults €8.50/night plus €8.50/pitch. You will need to take a bus into the center of Cortina (or 30 mins walk).

Bed and Breakfast Caldara – This very reasonably priced bed & breakfast (from €70 per room per night) is situated 10 minutes walking distance from the center of Cortina. The hosts are wonderful and even went out to look for us in their car on the afternoon of our arrival. The alpine chalet style rooms are clean and cosy. One of the best continental breakfast spreads we’ve ever had!
