Part of the vast Dolomiti Superski ski area, the largest ski area in the world.
Canazei is a village of just under 2,000 inhabitants in the Ladin-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 Sellaronda ski circuit. Canazei is often mentioned in conjunction with the neighbouring village of Campitello, which has its own connection into the vast Sellaronda area with a lift from the resort heading up near the Sella Pass.
