Cortina

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I'm headed to Cortina in a couple weeks and am wondering about the transfer from Venice airport up to Cortina.  I'll have my wife and two young kids with me.  As always, the balance of convenience and cost are crucial.  Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers.

Check out these guys http://www.ski-lifts.com/Airports/Venice-Airport-Transfers.aspx They have been around a while. 

 

But also look at car hire. With a group of four it might be about the same price. Having a car increases your options.

 

I have skied the Dolomites a fair bit but usually flew into Bergamo and stayed in Arabba. Only once used a transfer co. usually hiring a car.

Come back and tell us how your trip went.  Cortina is on my bucket list and am considering it for next season so am eager to hear what others think of it.

Going to Arabba in one week. Flying on to Venice, Marco Pol. We are two families (4 kids). Since we're not arriving and leaving on the weekend, the transfer service wasn't an option. Instead we asked the hotel to arrange a private transfer with minibus. They charge us €500 for a roundtrip. Think it's very reasonable. Getting two cars would be about the same and not having to drive, mess with picking up and returningthe car and be responsible for a parked car is BIG plus. We used to hire cars before but tried to private transfer a few years ago. Haven't looked back once.

TR with details of the Passo Pordoi area absolutely necessary, with video, pics and detailed commentary. Have fun, reports of major snow inbound in the Dolomites.

Will report back, no doubt. However it won't be up to your meticolous standards Dusty, I'm afraid.

I skied Cortina for a week in '96, part of large group trip with ground transport provided. Lots of vans going from the airport to Cortina, I can't imagine it being too expensive. The town is very small and you could walk from one end to the other - including residential areas - in probably 10 (?) minutes. Once there everything is within easy walking and you don't need a vehicle, I'm not sure where you'd park it anyway. Busses go to the surrounding ski areas via twisty turny narrow roads. Nice for someone else to be driving. The Sella Ronda is worth doing.
