Passion meets the magic of a winter holiday when visiting an Italian ski resort. Although living out a white Christmas sometimes seems like a dream in Australia, an Italian escape will certainly let you live out that dream! Italy's popular ski locations are easily accessed by plane and car, creating the perfect adventure honeymoon or escape from your day-to-day life.
Tucked away in Italy's majestic mountains are a ski-lover's dream – the Italian Dolomites. Known as the most cosmopolitan of Italy's ski resorts, Cortina is an elegant town with an abundant lifestyle both on and off the slopes. Couples can visit this area on the Dolomiti Superski Pass, the largest single-ski pass area in the world.
52m of slopes, 27 modern lift systems and an excellent link with the other areas of the Dolomiti Superski and the Sella Ronda. Ski around Porta Vescovo, the home mountain of Arabba that's almost 2500m high.
One of the most popular ski resorts in this region is Courmayeur, offering 100km of ski trails in a strictly Italian atmosphere. Couples also love the the romantic and charming Club Med Pragelato, in the heart of Italy's Piedmont region.
Leisure and Dining
It's a holiday for those who love the outdoors. The unique and special mountain locations offer everything from skiing and snowboarding, to trekking and climbing. If indoors exploration is more your style, the ski resorts are home to museums, shopping and history waiting to be uncovered. The friendly and hospitable locals are always willing to help travellers out, too – maybe you can uncover a secret travel gem!
Rich, sumptuous Italian cuisine isn't limited to the big cities – in fact, these mountain towns are revered for their unique cuisine as much as the famous cities! Try out the Il Piemonte restaurant at Club Med Pragelato – the breathtaking panoramic mountain views and creative cuisine will leave your senses satisfied.
