Marmolada

Overview

The Queen of the Dolomites 

The Marmolada, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, boasts the appellation Queen of the Dolomites. Situated between the provinces of Belluno and Trento, this mountain group is the highest in the Dolomite area with a peak, Punta Penia, reaching 3,343 metres above sea level. 

It is also the most popular with winter sports enthusiasts. In fact, Marmolada is home to one of the most scenic ski areas in the Dolomites, the Marmolada Ski Area, with the longest slope in the Dolomites: the Bellunese, a 12-kilometre route that crosses the famous Marmolada glacier, the largest glacial apparatus in the Dolomites, to Passo Fedaia and Malga Ciapela.

The state-of-the-art ski lifts covering the area are active both in winter and in summer, when the Marmolada remains a popular destination for trekking and mountain-bike enthusiasts. You can enjoy many kilometres of tracks through forests and slopes surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in Italy.

On Marmolada you can also visit the cave of the Madonnaat an altitude of almost 3,000 metres. This cavity carved into the rock houses a large statue of Mary and was created by the Alpini in the 1980s.
