On a 20 minute drive from cortina D’Ampezzo you can take a cable car (5 torri) to this beautiful wonder.
From there you can immediately see the astonishing rock formations. It is a easy short walk to the Torre itself. You can walk around these unique rock formations, it is a nice walk of around 2 kilometres. You can also enjoy the rock climbers that go up or learn something about the world war and how that played out in these mountains.
At the top of the cable car there is of course a rifugio to enjoy the view with a meal or drink. You can also start other hikes to surrounding mountains.

This area is really varied and beautiful. The cable car gets very slow to go over to Alta Badia side so best approached from Cortina on the gondola system. Do the Super 8 ring and the various bits around it.

Totally wirth visiting. You can leave you car at the carpark under the funicular and take the funicular up if you dont feel like hiking all the way. There are incredible views on the top with a short hike trail around the mountain that even kids can manage with little help. Right at the funicular is a small hut with great choice of snacks and drinks a clean bathroom. We spent around 2.5 hours there as we had other plans for the day, but this can definitely be a whole day adventure.

Great views: most tourists take the chairlift from Bai de Dones and go up to Rifugio Nuvolau, but I recommend this hike that we did.
Drive to Rifugio Col Gallina, take the pittoresque fairy tale-like path n.419 to Lago Limedes and Forcella Avereau (2435m). From Forcela Avereau, you go left on path n.441 to Rifugio Avereau (2416m), on this path you have magnificent views over Passo Falzarego. From Rifugio Avereau you can go up to Rifugio Nuvolau, which gives you breathtaking 360° views (tip: download PeakVisor on your smarthpone which allows you to see the names of all peaks and their heights) but this part is quite popular with tourists. You can then go down to Cinque Torri, hike around and then choose to take the Bai de Dones chairlift (which is quite expensive) or hike down to Pian dei Menis and back to Rifugio Col Gallina.
For more details on this hike, I recommend the book "Shorter walks in the dolomites": in this book, it is a combination of Hike 20 & 21.

Cinque Torri is just 30 minutes drive time from Cortina d"Ampezzo. Once you exit the road there is a single lane road leading to the Rifugio Scoiattoli below the massive rocks. It is a tight and twisting road and not for the faint of heart. The rifugio was closed when we visited in October. We hiked behind the rifugio and the trail leads straight up through the Cinque Torri formation. It is a short distance from the rifugio, but only accessible by hiking. You might also enjoy the World War I Italian lines for defense and there are signs explaining the fortifications and lives lost during battle. Aside from Cinque Torri the views here are just amazing. And you might also stop and enjoy the beautiful forest below. Great location!

Drive up the mountain pass and take a chair lift which brings you directly on top of this plateau and enjoy that beautiful panorama view which differs completely in every direction!
The WWI open air museum right underneath the Cinque Torri spikes is an absolute must-do and will take you about an hour.
Don't forget to have a drink on the mountain shelter's terrace and enjoy the view!

Easy 8-12km day hike with stunning views. About 450m vertical and it will take between 3-5 hours depending on how much time you spend exploring the fortifications at the top.

We drove down from La Villa one morning, and took the unnamed singletrack road [turnoff near the Cianzope bus stop] leading to Rifugio Cinqe Torri, and parked in a vacant layby. We then began climbing for about 30 mins to reach Rifugio Scoiattoli, as the pinnacles of the Cinque Torri began to unfold before us. After a short rest and snack break, and enjoying the terrific views of the full face of the Cinque Torri, we ascended for a further 30 minutes (relatively easy path) to Rifugio Averau. The scenery is nothing short of magical, and we treated ourselves to hot chocolate at Averau. The views were dramatic with the Tofana south face behind us and Cinque Torri in front of us. We also explored another trail from Scoiattoli that took us through an open air museum including WW bunkers, barracks and lookout points which was fun.

We spent the day doing a loop hike around Cinque Torri. The area is just so beautiful and there are great views. The only negative is because it is such a beautiful and popular area it was the most crowded hike we did in the Dolomites. We hiked for 10 days in the Dolomites and this by far was the busiest hike and with so many people it took some of the enjoyment away from the day. We are glad we did the hike but if we were to come back we would not do this hike again where as many of the others we would for sure do.

Generally fit and active, but non-hikers or crazy outdoors folks can enjoy this spectacular approx 10 km hike with a modest amount of climbing. Hiking surfaces are easy, mostly dirt roads or evenly graded trails. There are several rifugios on the way and the way is well marked - really just follow the crowd! Available by Dolomiti Public Bus.
