Exceeded our expectations! So beautiful with the Christmas lights and markets. I researched via TA the perfect Christmas village for our holiday and absolutely made the right choice! The pedestrian zone is chocolate box gorgeous.

Hi, the main street is traffic free, so no issue from that point of view. Off the main road I have to admit did not make a specific note about dropped kerbs so don't feel qualified to help on that. We were in car park across... More

Tak a train to Chiusa and bus to Ortisei. Seems the easiest and cheapest way to get there.
