A corner of Paradise in central Cadore
The AceroRosso restaurant is at Vodo di Cadore and is one of the nearest restaurants to the Lunga Via delle Dolomiti, the cycle track between Dobbiaco and Calalzo di Cadore, going along the former railroad that at one time carried the Trenino delle Dolomiti. A mere 13 kilometres from Cortina on Alemagna state road no. 51, it can be reached via a side road off the state road and enjoys an elevated position surrounded by green countryside far away from the traffic.
The territory in which the restaurant is situated is well known for its numerous mountain refuges and for the hikers’ paths which are suitable for summer walks and for snow-shoeing or ski mountaineering in winter. There are also cross-country pistes and downhill slopes for sledging, among dense woods and high altitude meadows. If you are still wondering what to visit after you have discovered this natural paradise, we will be happy to give you some ideas.
With its faintly city air, Pieve is a place we love to suggest to anyone looking for something to do together with their children.
Pieve is famous as the birthplace around 1480 of the celebrated Tiziano Vecellio (the artist Titian) and because it hosts an exhibition that is unique of its type: the Museo dell’Occhiale, the Museum of Spectacles. It displays more than 4000 pairs of spectacles, testifying to the more recent historical period of Central Cadore, distinguished by its production of glasses exported all over the world.
Among the sights to be seen, Vinigo and Valle warrant particular respect and attention. Vinigo appears to be one of the most ancient human settlements of Cadore. Its exceptional panoramic position has led to its being dubbed the “terrace of the Dolomites”.
The nearby Valle di Cadore has a noble aspect with its sixteenth-century houses and palaces in Venetian style rich in vaults, balconies bearing coats of arms and characteristic nooks.
