The accessible viewpoint of Punta Rocca, which lies at an altitude of 3265 metres, affords exceptional views and is located in the central and highest point of the Dolomites. It has an unhampered, 360° view over all the World Heritage peaks: from the Catinaccio group to the Pale di San Martino, from Civetta to Pelmo and Croda da Lago, from the peaks of the Ampezzo Valley to those of Alta Badia. The summit of the Marmolada also has something no other mountain in the Dolomites has: a glacier covering its north face. Since December 2017, visitors can physically touch the glacier snow with lifts which take them directly to the lowest tip of the glacier.

The viewpoint can be reached by the Marmolada cableway. Access to the valley station is very easy from the car park opposite the cableway in Malga Ciapèla (1450 m a.s.l.). Take the first available cabin to the middle station of Banc (2350 m a.s.l.), change and ride up to Serauta (2950 m a.s.l.). At Serauta you can visit the Marmolada Museum of the Great War 3000 m (fully accessible) and have lunch at the self-service restaurant which has an excellent view over the Sacred Monumental Area of Serauta. Then you can climb even higher with another cabin to Punta Rocca (3265 m a.s.l.) where, thanks to a lift, you can access the panoramic terrace giving you an unparalleled view of the Dolomites every season of the year from the summit and in the open air.
