San Vito di Cadore – holiday in the Dolomites

We spent a week in San Vito di Cadore and surroundings, hiking, eating and making photographs.

We were there in the early summer, just a bit before the start of the main season, so it wasn’t as crowded as it is in high season.

Below is a small selection of some of the things we saw.

A bit about San Vito di Cadore

San Vito di Cadore is a small village straddling the main road between Cortina and Cadore, at around one thousand meters above sea level. It is the home of at most a few thousand persons.

Its history goes back at least to the Middle Ages. The beautiful local church dates to the 13th century.

From the 1920s to the 1960s, there was a rail line between the two towns, and the chassé is now a walking and cycling path, mostly separate from the modern road. A series of old, very picturesque station buildings still stand along the road.

There’s a network of hiking paths heading up the mountain sides, and there are numerous ski facilities.
