Quote: Just 20 miles north of Belluno, but a million miles from the bustling tourist crowds of the Veneto, the town of Pieve di Cadore awaits. Nestled in the shadow of the Marmolada peaks of the Dolomite range, the overwhelming natural beauty of the Italian countryside is only exceeded by the warmth and hospitality of the local people.
