Moena, the gateway to Val di Fassa. At the bottom of a gentle slope into the valley, surrounded by some of the most beautiful mountains in the Dolomites, including the Rosengarten and the Latemar. Moena is the most populous village in the valley, and is known as the “Fairy of the Dolomites” because of the charm and wonder of the area described in old stories about the town. In Moena there’s more than just nature on offer. Shopaholics will love the bright and colourful shops in the town.
San Pellegrino Pass
The San Pellegrino pass (1,918 metres) is a wide mountainous bridge between Moena and Falcade. During the winter the slopes are full of skiers making their way up and down the slopes, but it’s a place worth seeing in the summer too. Modern lifts are available to help guests on their way to discover this stunning landscape on foot or on two wheels. Families with children like it here too, not least because it’s the starting point for a lot of easy, fun hiking routes.
Falcade (1,100 m) is a big village in the Belluno Dolomites at the foot of the Focobon, in the stunning Valle del Biois at the Veneto edge of the Alpe Lusia/San Pellegrino hiking area, where lots of tourists make their way through the mountains, forests and across the mountain pastures to the Falcade plateau. If you book a summer holiday here you’ll be able to look forward to a paradise of nature easily reached using modern lifts, as well as museum visits and other cultural offerings.
Sooraga di Fassa
This is an area where the locals speak a language called Ladin, and the name Soraga comes from the Ladin sora l’èga (above the water), in reference to the nearby Avisio river. Soraga is one of the oldest settlements in the area. Over the years the town has grown and modernised, its people working constantly to improve the area. It’s never lost its Ladin flair, though. Soraga is the place for relaxation, and the surrounding nature is the perfect place for it.
