Holidays in San Giovanni di Fassa in Val di Fassa
San Giovanni di Fassa is a new Trentino municipality born from the union of the municipalities of Vigo di Fassa and Pozza di Fassa. Listed among the most beautiful villages in Italy, it includes the hamlets of Vigo di Fassa, Pera, and Pozza di Fassa, and is the tourist destination par excellence for lovers of outdoor activities. The resort offers a lot to families with playgrounds and equipped facilities, and to wellness lovers with renowned hotels with state-of-the-art spas and wellness centers.
Vigo di Fassa
With its ideal location, Vigo dominates the entire valley and offers a unique view of the Dolomites: from Cima Undici to the Marmolada. It is the ideal starting point for excursions and climbing in the Catinaccio range or for demanding mountain bike tours of the Ciampedie. At the end of November, skiing starts in the Ciampedie ski area, easily reachable by cable car from the town center and suitable for families for its fun slopes, including those dedicated to Gustav Thöni and Alberto Tomba, and for the presence of an equipped playground, the Kinderpark Ciampedie. From Vigo you can also reach the ski area of the Costalunga-Carezza Pass that connects with Nova Levante in South Tyrol. As in all the localities of Fassa, the Ladin culture is deeply felt: the Ladin Museum of Fassa is located here, which houses the ethnographic collections of the Ladin Cultural Institute.
Pozza di Fassa
Crowned by Cima Undici and Cima Dodici, Pozza di Fassa is an oasis of well-being and tranquility, thanks to its thermal waters that flow at 1,320 meters from a sulfur spring and are ideal for skin care. Terme Dolomia are unique places for body care and mental wellbeing. In addition to thermal spas, Pozza di Fassa is also a popular destination for sport climbing and excursions in the characteristic Val San Nicolò. In winter, you can ski in the Buffaure-Ciampac ski area, which has one of the longest slopes in the valley and connects to that of Ciampac in Alba di Canazei. In Pozza you also have the opportunity to ski at night in the Aloch Ski Stadium, where international alpine skiing competitions are held. And for cross-country skiing, the Marcialonga ring and the Ciancoal ring are very impressive in the evening.
Pera di Fassa
At 1 km from Pozza di Fassa is Pera di Fassa, the birthplace of mountaineer Tita Piaz, the Devil of the Dolomites. The most ambitious sportsmen are able to retrace Tita Piaz's exploits on the peaks of the Catinaccio and the Vajolet Towers and will feel like the famous mountaineers who plowed through these mountains. Those seeking more relaxed activities can go hiking at high altitude or simply admire the view: Cima Undici and Dodici, Val San Nicolò, and the steep cliffs of Sass del Peredarfech. In winter, thanks to its central location, you can access cross-country skiing trails, snowshoe walks, or reach the Ciampedie area, and in a few minutes, the other ski areas of the valley, while the children have fun in the Bimbo Snow Park.
