In 2017 you will have an opportunity to visit Cremona and Venice, to join a hiking tour in the Dolomites and to ride with a gondola cableway to the Alpe di Siusi/ Seiser Alm.
In the leisure time between recitals, master classes, rehearsals and practicing, you will find yourself in the heart of the picturesque nature reserve Naturpark Schlern-Rosengarten. On June 26, 2009, the UNESCO Council nominated the Dolomites as a Natural World Heritage Site. This is what the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) says:
“The Dolomites display unparalleled geological, botanical and scenic qualities, which make them stand out among all the mountain ranges of the world. They especially stressed the variety of herbs and flowers that can be found here. The Dolomites feature over 2,400 types of plant and an extended Nature Reserve and National Park area (a total of approx. 142,000 ha).”
You will have an oportunity to discover the beauty of the Dolomites on a hiking tour in the mountains. Even if your fitness level is not too high you will be able to enjoy the tour.
The Alpe di Siusi, the sunny side of the Dolomites, is the largest high alpine pasture and one of the most famous ski and excursion areas of Europe with its 52 km² mountain surrounded alpine pastures. The Alpe di Siusi is well-known all over the world for its colourful flowers in the summer and its glittering blanket of snow in the winter.
The ultra-modern cable railway Alpe di Siusi connects Ortisei, the main village of the Gardena Valley, with the 2000 m high Alpe di Siusi. The widest plateau of Europe and the unique view are reachable in only a few minutes and very comfortably. Here you will find a breath taking mountain scenery consisting of the Gruppo del Sella, Gruppo del Sassolungo, Catinaccio and the Sciliar surrounding the Alpe di Siusi. In summer the top station of the cable railway is an ideal starting point for walks and ambitious excursions or just a relaxing place with a beautiful view.
You won’t be able to forget the panorama expanding in front of you while rising in a gondola cableway up to the mountains.
