Cortina d'Ampezzo

ca 6150

With city centre at 1244 m and 3244 m high peak of Tofana di Mezzo in sight, long snowy winters with frequent lowest temperature records, Cortina d'Ampezzo has become (quite unsurprisingly) one of the most popular ski resorts in Northern Italy and the whole Alps. The Winter Olympics of 1944 should have been held there but were cancelled because of the World War II. However, in 1956 the town has finally held the event and since then never experienced downturns in visitors, even though the airport, built before the Games, was then closed. The town was already quite famous amongst Italian and British elites in the beginning of 20th century, but become especially fashionable after the Olympics. Many celebrities frequent its slopes, and many movies were shot here.
