Belluno is an ancient town and offers the visitor many traces of its past, immersed in a dream. On the city seem to watch the snow-capped Dolomites. The name derives from the Celtic Belluno bel-dunums, meaning "shining city". In fact, the city enjoys an exceptional location in the heart of the valley that lies between Belluno Alps and Dolomites . In the old town, perched on top of a hill, you can breathe the characteristic climate of the mountain town, where the rhythms are ancient ones, on a human scale.
