Vigo di Fassa - holidays for mountaineers

Vigo di Fassa is situated right below the Passo di Carezza. It is a popular starting point for climbing-tours and excursions in summer and for snowshoe hikes, cross-country skiing, alpine skiing and backcountry skiing in winter.

An absolute must-visit is the Mount "Ciampedie". You reach Ciampedie with a homonymous cable car from Vigo di Fassa. Up there, at 1.998 m above sea level, you have a wonderful view over the surrounding mountains- from the Rosengarten to the Pale di San Martino. Ciampile is a rewarding skiing area in winter. It offers different black slopes for professionals. One of those is called "Tomba" after the Italian ski racer Alberto Tomba.

In summer, however, many professional soccer teams from all over Italy use Vigo di Fassa as location to prepare for upcoming seasons. The climate, the air pressure and the altitude are perfect for a good and efficient training. Some of Italy's most famous soccer teams, like Turin, Sampdoria, Lecce and Lazio have already been here.

Vigo di Fassa is also the seat of the Ladin Culture Institute. Here you get additional information about the Ladin traditions and culture. There is also a very interesting museum for you to visit here.
