Here in the heart of the Dolomites, where I can combine active holidays with leisure moments, I feel at home
Corvara. Alta Badia. There's probably not much I need to say about the village in the heart of the Ladin Dolomites, as it has always been one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Alps (yes, even I know that!). The town is located at 1,568 metres a.s.l. and has always played an important role in the history of tourism in South Tyrol.
Back in the second half of the 18th century, young locals already accompanied explorers and researchers to the peaks of the Dolomites, many of which were still unexplored.
During the 1930s, the first ski school of Alta Badia was founded and, what I consider particularly interesting is, that, a little more than a decade later (in 1946), Italy's first chairlift was opened on the Col Alto.
There's a lot to discover in Corvara. Not only in terms of history, also when it comes to its charming atmosphere. You really have to experience it for yourself!
