Belluno
 After traveling through the stretch of the Ampezzo Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage site, with its wonderful views of the Dolomites, it continues across the plains crossing the valley leading to Fadalto and Lake Santa Croce. Belluno is well worth a visit, the provincial capital of the Dolomites, which is located in the green Belluno Valley, with an architectural style resulting from a merger of its Venetian past with its Nordic style.

Among the places to visit: the San Martino Cathedral, the Palazzo dei Rettori and the Palazzo del Comune.

Following the course of the Piave River, and closely linked to the Great War, you descent to Alpago and arrive at Lake Santa Croce, an area connected to the ancient Cansiglio Forest. State-owned land and forestry resources used during the Venetian Republic on the border between Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia, still remains as one of the largest forests in Europe. An area where you can practise various sports, from trekking to Nordic walking, from skiing to playing on the golf course, and obviously practise cycling.

The Giro d’Italia has travelled through the Cansiglio Forest six times.

Even on Lake Santa Croce, whose waters reflect the peaks surrounding the valley, you can practice sports, such as windsurfing and sailing.

On the eastern shore of this natural basin - one of the largest lakes in the Dolomites - lies the town of Farra di Alpago, a main resort area.

The route then follows the old national Alemagna motorway and permanently leaving the mountainous part of this route, you will encounter a long descent that stretches to the Lapisina Valley, home of the city of Vittorio Veneto.
