Recreation and the Surrounding Area
The Veneto region of Italy is well known for its physical beauty. Characterized by the Dolomites to the north and the Adriatic Sea to the south, the region provides a wide variety of both summer and winter sports. There are a number of beaches within a one-hour drive south and world-class skiing in Cortina d’Ampezzo, approximately two-hours north of the campuses. The larger community also enjoys a variety of private clubs offering health facilities, tennis, golf, swimming, white-water rafting, horseback riding and other sports. Although the mountains provide a formidable challenge, a number of students have enjoyed cycling and hiking. Other students with skills in rugby and soccer have joined local teams.
