Welcome to Canazei
Canazei is surely the most renowned tourist town of the region and is above all acclaimed nationally and internationally for its winter tourism thanks also to its strategic position by the Dolomite Passes of Pordoi, Sella and Fedaia. Moreover, the very modern ski lifts really make the area of Canazei a model ski resort in the whole Alpine arc.
Set in a stupendous natural basin and at the foot of some of the most alluring and wonderful Dolomite peaks, Canazei has seen a notable expansion in building work during the last decade, while remaining firmly tied to its Ladin origins and traditions, of which many visible traces remain even in the architecture like they do in thier own popular customs. Great care is taken to safeguard and look after the customs of the Ladin people who here, like elsewhere, are welcomed in dance, theatre and culture groups. At the end of each summer the representatives of all the Ladino peoples gather at Canazei for the Gran festa d’ista, now a classic meeting of local tradition. Canazei represents an ideal match between nature and sport, shows and culture, relaxation and night life: there are, in fact, many typical bars and restaurants, pubs, après ski and piano bars where people go, especially in winter, until the first light of dawn.
