The village of Falcade, near Belluno, in Northern Italy, is a small jewel nestled in the Dolomites, one of the most beautiful mountain groups of Italy.
The Dolomites are one of the favorite travel destinations by all mountain lovers, because of the wonderful landscapes that they contain (it is no coincidence that in 2009 they have been declared World Heritage Site by the Unesco) and because of the great number of activities that you can do there, both in winter and in summer. Falcade, in the Valle del Biois, is a small but famous village, which attracts Italian and foreign tourists in winter as well as in summer, and it is famous above all for the wonderful place where it rises.

Moreover, in Falcade you can enjoy one of the best views on the Dolomites: no wonder that many tourists choose this little mountain village to spend their holidays.
