Situated on the Boite river, in an alpine valley, it is a popular winter sport resort known for its skiing trails, scenery, accommodation, shops and après-ski scene, and for its jet set and aristocratic European crowd. Cortina has a long tradition in hosting writers, intellectuals, poets and editors from all over the world.
