Visit Belluno - Best of Belluno

Visiting Italy can ignite your passion for arts, architecture, culture and nature. The same stands true for this small town province in the Veneto region of northern Italy. Belluno is just 100 kilometres away from Venice and has thus remained obscured because of the tourist concentration in the former city. However, if you really wish to explore the soul of Italy, then this city is a must visit as it still preserves some of the magnificent architectural remnants of Renaissance. Belluno is situated at the confluence of the Ardo stream as it flows into the Piave, and its historic centre is built on a small plateau, on an elevated, strategic position between the two rivers. This city also acts as a strategic gateway to many ski resorts of the eastern dolomites, such as Crotina D’Ampezzo. Just over 7 miles south of town is great powder skiing at Alpe de Nevegal that shall quench your thirst for adventure.

This quaint city is nestled in the majestic snowcapped Dolomites Mountains that offer a perfect backdrop to this historic centre. Belluno knows how to entice you with its architectural combination of Venetian archways and Renaissance adornments. Meander through its beautiful squares and lanes and witness some of the ancient historic buildings such as– The Piazza Duomo with the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta and the Palazzo dei Rettori.
