Calalzo di Cadore is a municipality of 2,400 inhabitants of the province of Belluno, in the Italian region of Veneto. The name Calalzo derives from the Latin altus callis, meaning "high place." The geographical name "di Cadore" was added by Presidential Decree on the 30th of June, 1959.
Calalzo lies within the Cadore Dolomites. The Dolomites are a range of limestone mountains in northeastern Italy. Nearby is a lake named Lago di Calalzo (Lake Calalzo), which is 12 kilometres (7 mi) long.
Calalzo is home to a cycling path lying on the old railway line of Calalzo-Cortina, built in 1915 to move supplies during World War I. It became a tourist path in 1930 and was suppressed in 1967. Today it extends from Calalzo to Dobbiaco. During the year 2004 it was sealed and generally improved with better lighting in the tunnels.
