The bus departs from London on Friday morning and arrives in Cortina on Saturday evening, taking in Amsterdam, Brussels, Liege, Luxembourg and Paris en route. There is a quick change of bus at Mestre before heading into the mountains. The return service from Cortina to London departs on Saturday and arrives on Sunday.
A new bus service between London and Cortina has been launched, allowing skiers heading to the Dolomites a leisurely plane-free journey.
‘The new bus service is an alternative to air travel and embraces the philosophy of “slow travel:” enjoy the views from the comfort of your seat and arrive in the Ampezzo valley without the usual frenzy of travelling,’ said a statement from the Italian resort.
As well as being more environmentally friendly, travelling by bus also avoids the stress of airport check-in and long waiting times in the airport.
The service will run every Saturday until March 27th. A one-way ticket costs €100.
