Part of the vast Dolomiti Superski ski area, the largest ski area in the world
Canazei is a village of just under 2000 inhabitants in the Latin-speaking part of the Dolomites in Italy. Narrow streets, rustic buildings and traditional architecture gives this quaint town an effervescent character. It is one of the main winter centres in the Val di Fassa (Fassatal for the German-speaking part of the South Tyrol) and occupies a strategic position in the popular Sella Ronda ski circuit. Canazei is often mentioned in conjunction with the neighbouring village of Campitello, which has its own connection into the vast Sella Ronda area with a lift from the resort heading up near the Sella Pass.
