Trekking to the Venezia Refuge

Difficulty: moderate. Time required: 3,5 hours.

Rifugio Venezia-Albamaria De Luca is nestled below Mount Pelmo and may be reached from Vodo (Ciauta), Borca (Villanova) or San Vito (Serdes). From San Vito or Borca, walk along the dirt road no. 460 as far as the Tiera tablelands. At the 470 junction, turn left and walk up the easy, yet not scenic path to Mount Pelmo. On reaching the mountain inn, the forest becomes thinner. The inn is the starting point for the climbing routes to the top of Mount Pelmo. The path is not too demanding. Time required: 3 ½ hours.
