We will be staying in Canazei where, you’ll find the biggest ski center in Val di Fassa. It comprises the slopes at the foot of the Pordoi, Sella and Fedaia passes and is divided into the four areas of Belvedere, Ciampac, Col Rodella and Marmolada, all of which can be reached quickly and easily from the village. With its modern lifts and direct links to the Sellaronda, Canazei is one of the most popular winter sports areas in the entire Alpine region. The Sellaronda is well-known and is amongst the most impressive ski circuits in South Tyrol and indeed in the whole of the Alps. The well-connected lifts and superbly prepared pistes will allow you uninterrupted skiing on almost 30 kms of ski runs in one single day. On the Sellaronda, there is really no need for you to take off your skis and you will never have to cover the same stretch twice. The Sellaronda is one of the best-known ski routes in the world, encompassing four Dolomite passes around the Sella group. You will ski across the Ladin valleys of Val Gardena, Alta Badia, Arabba and Val di Fassa, covering 40 km, 27 km of which are pure skiing fun.



Situated in the resort center of Canazei, our Hotel Astoria is located only 500 yards from the Belvedere cable car providing guests with direct access to the Giro dei 4 Passi ski area. The hotel is decorated in a contemporary mountain style, with wooden furnishing and cozy finishes. All the bedrooms come complete with WIFI.

Thanks to its double perspective, Bolzano can mesmerize tourists who come from all over. Its two lifestyles, one Northern European and the other more Mediterranean, combine to make the perfect union, which can be clearly seen in the historic and artistic treasures of this city. Bolzano is a city in the South Tyrol province of north Italy, set in a valley amid hilly vineyards. It's a gateway to the Dolomites mountain range in the Italian Alps. In the medieval city center, the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology features the Neolithic mummy called Ötzi the Iceman. Nearby is the imposing 13th-century Mareccio Castle, and the Duomo di Bolzano cathedral with its Romanesque and Gothic architecture.
