Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

The Soraruf family have been running Hotel Cesa Tyrol for 40 years and you can expect a friendly welcome when you arrive. This is one of the finest hotels in Canazei and it's perfect if you want to be in the heart of the Dolomites. The stylish alpine interiors really complement the natural landscape and there's a fab Tyrolean style bar and even a tennis court made from quartziferous sands taken from the mountains.

The bus stop is close by and the town centre is within walking distance - you'll find some fantastic shops, bars and restaurants here. In the summer you can even smell the scent of apples from the orchards above as you walk around. This is a region with a rich focus on food so try as much as you can. Sample olives, apples, chestnuts, mushrooms and corn fresh from the fields, washed down with a glass of Novello wine.

The hotel has loads to offer including a two lane bowling alley (payable locally), a games room, a gym and a wellness area with a Finnish sauna, Turkish bath and lots of treatments (payable locally). If you plan on cycling while on holiday this is definitely the hotel for you. Not only are they well-equipped for cyclists, the staff have all the knowledge of great rides and will even hook you up with guided tours from the Fassa MTB association.

Transfer time: approx. 2 hours 30 mins by coach from Verona airport.

Canazei has a stunning location surrounded by some of the most iconic mountains in the Dolomites. Take in the spectacular views at the top of the Marmolada or put yourself to the test by making your way up the well-groomed paths as you aim for the top of the Piz Boe. We love this family-friendly resort thanks to the endless number of activities that cater for every ability.

What to see on a Canazei holiday

Cycling is a great way to see the local area. Stick to the green forests on the valley floor or head for the exhilarating bike park trails. There's great views no matter where you go. Canazei's rich history dates back to World War One and you can learn all about the battles that took place with a visit to the Great War Museum. Take time to wonder round the cobbled streets too, there’s always something going on like music concerts and food & wine shows. If you want to explore further afield, hiking up the mountains is a great day out or you can easily jump on the lifts enjoy the spectacular views without too much effort.

Why book a holiday in Canazei with Inghams

We work in the Dolomites year round and feature the best resorts out there including Canazei. Our hotels are all traditional Italian properties near to the lifts and centre of town. We make sure you’re always in safe hands.

Things to Do

Things to see and do in the Canazei

Jumping on the lifts is one of the best ways to get out and about. Many of them allow for bikes so you can explore the Sella, Marmolada and Sassolungo mountains by foot or on two wheels. Or just hop on the shuttle train and enjoy a sightseeing tour to Val Contrin.

Throughout the season there's plenty going on from international mountain running to the Ladin folk festival, where locals from all over the Dolomites come together to celebrate their culture. 

After exploring, we love heading for the Doloandes Wellness Centre. With both fun pools and relaxation areas, it's a great way for all the family to have some fun splashing about. 

Food & drink 

When on holiday in the Dolomites you have to try out one of the many mountain huts - they're perfect for lunch. You can expect traditional Ladin recipes with many of the ingredients being sourced locally. Visit as many as you can to try lots of different dishes and unique views of the Dolomites. 

There's plenty of places for a drink in Canizei but if you like your wine, visit the Valentini Wine & Speciality Shop. They've got a great selection and you can stock up on snacks like cheese and homemade strudel too.


There's loads of great walking near Canazei including the Strada die Russi (The Road of the Russians). It's a nice easy two hour walk and the perfect way to warm up the legs at the start of your holiday. Advanced walks  includes climbing up the Piz Boe, the highest mountain of the Sella group with an elevation of 3,152 meters.

Take a trip to the Dolomiti Action Adventure Park in Campitello di Fassa or the Adventure Park Piciocaa in Pozza di Fassa to learn or test your skills along aerial zip lines, Tibetan and Nepalese swinging bridges and suspended rope passages.

Cycling is massive in Canazei, with over 400 routes to explore. One of the most popular goes through the Fassa and Fiemme valleys and along the River Avisio.
