URTIJЁI / ST. ULRICH / ORTISEI
The main village of Val Gardena is the elegant Ortisei. The main street is full of shops not for every budget and we recommend you rather to take advantage of a tour in the center to enjoy a delicious breakfast based on strudel. Walking through the center of Ortisei, you will come across the church of St. Anthony in front of the fountain adorned with two cherubs. In the background, our beloved Dolomites. Isn’t it a wonderful view?
The elegance of this town is testified by the presence of exclusive hotels. We suggest you to park your car at the lift to Alpe di Siusi and reach the centre through the bridge over the state road. From this passage you can clearly see the swimming pool of the Cavallino Bianco, which also opens onto the outside.
From the centre of Ortisei you can easily reach Alpe di Siusi and Alpe Seceda, both hiking and skiing areas. To reach the Alpe Seceda and Resciesa lifts from the centre, you can climb up a series of escalators and moving walkways alongside which photographs of the great champions of Val Gardena from yesterday and today have been installed: truly an irresistible “hall of fame” for enthusiasts!
