Introducing Belluno

Perched on high bluffs above the Piave river and backed majestically by the snowcapped Dolomites, Belluno makes a scenic and strategic base to explore the surrounding mountains. The historical old town is its own attraction, with easy walks past Renaissance-era buildings. And you'll be happy to fuel up for tramps in the nearby mountains on the city's mountain-based cuisine and some of Italy's most remarkable cheeses, including Schiz (semisoft cow's milk cheese, usually fried in butter) and the flaky, butter yellow Malga Bellunense.
