Perched on a hill, surrounded by high mountains, for centuries many roads have met at Feltre linking all the surrounding areas. First-time visitors to the historic centre will be surprised and delighted to discover such an artistic treasure-trove tucked away in the highbackwoods of the Dolomites.
Feltre owes it nickname, “Borgo Verticale” (literally: vertical town), to its setting in which the walled town seems to clamber up the hill dominated by the castle named after Alboin, in a landscape that meanders along the banks of the river Piave among the majestic peaks of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Home to the headquarters of the Belluno Dolomites National Park, Feltre has a rich and varied natural heritage and that, along with historic remains from every era a
nd all sorts of cultural and sporting events, offers visitors a fascinating stay.
