The ski resort town of Sappada is located high up in the Dolomite mountains in northern Italy, just a few miles from the border with Austria. With just over 1000 permanent inhabitants, our homely village in the province of Udine, in the Italian region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, is full of Alpine spirit and vibrant, wholesome beauty. Between Venice and Innsbruck, Cortina d’Ampezzo and Ljubljana, in a magical mountainous region of the world that defies the concept of political borders, you’ll encounter a mix of cultures, where the warmth, sunshine and fine cuisine of Italy meets the great, fresh outdoors of the trip of the world.
From Veneto you can take the A27 Mestre-Belluno motorway to the last Longarone exit (Pian di Vedoia), then continue to Pieve di Cadore. Near Auronzo di C. turn right to S. Stefano di C. and continue to Sappada.
Those arriving from Friuli Venezia Giulia, on the other hand, follow the A28 Palmanova-Tarvisio and exit at the Tolmezzo toll booth continuing on the state road 52 which passes through Ovaro and Rigolato up to Sappada.
The closest station is that of Calalzo di Cadore from which you can take the bus directly to Sappada and in less than an hour you have arrived; from the Friulian side, get off at Carnia station and from here take the bus to Sappada
