Sure its beautiful, glamorous and utterly enchanting, but resist the urge to spend all your time in the world’s most romantic city, hire a 4x4 from Venice Airport and head to the prestigious, expensive and utterly glamorous ski resort of Cortina d'Ampezzo. Venice is cold in the winter anyway.
Hire the Volkswagen Touareg as a great luxury midsize SUV, it makes a wise 4WD rental. The Range Rover Autobiography is highly comfortable, both for passengers in the soft woven fabrics and spacious seating as well as for driver as all the functions are driver oriented enhancing the pleasure of its control. Yet, if the spirit of adventure calls rent the Ford Expedition for its enthusiasm for rocky and difficult terrain, it seeks out adventure like a sixth sense, never looking back.
The famous, fashionable and albeit expensive resort town of Cortina d'Ampezzo is Italy’s testament to excellent ski and snow quality. There are two cable cars to choose from of which both are accessible from the town. Tofana is located by the ice arena on the northern side, with higher altitudes the snow condition is usually of an excellent standard, ensuring an exhilarating spin down the slopes. Alternatively, Faloria is on the southern end of town and with calmer ski conditions it is ideal for family and beginners to intermediates.
