Top things to See and Do in Val di Fassa
Many hotels in Val di Fassa have chic lounges where you can sit back, relax and savour the peaceful mountain atmosphere, preferably with a glass of local wine in hand.
Each village in Val di Fassa has a variety of trendy and sociable pubs, clubs and wine bars, many with daily happy hours. If you want to stay out extra late, the Hexen Klub is a huge nightclub open four nights a week until 4am - expect live music, DJs, dancing on tables and drinks flowing until the early hours.
Natural flavours and genuine, local ingredients are the secret to Val di Fassa’s mountain cuisine. Ladin and Italian dishes like canederli or pappardelle with game ragout are typical recipes of the region, having been passed down through the generations. You’ll find these two traditional dishes everywhere, from the small mountain refuges to the Michelin-starred restaurants. The eateries are spread out in Campitello, Canazei and up the mountains, so maybe have a look around before you choose.
Pizza with a view at Rifugio Salei
At the bottom of the Sassolungo mountain is Rifugio Salei, a self-service pizzeria and restaurant. The very particular interior décor makes this an enjoyable place to eat, and with a large sun terrace, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Dolomites over a slice of pizza.
Cosy and traditional at Mini Restaurant
Over in Campitello is a small but popular eatery, the Mini Restaurant. This family-run establishment prepares a range of traditional Ladin dishes from goulash to potato dumplings. But there are only 18 seats, so it’s important to book.
Unusual Italian at Osteria La Montanara
In the centre of Canazei is the Osteria La Montanara, a restaurant offering a more unusual range of Italian dishes. There are meat and cheese platters galore, and all the food is beautifully presented. However, they don’t do reservations so make sure you turn up early.
