San Cassiano Holidays

San Cassiano comes with five star hotels, Michelin star cuisine and outstanding natural beauty

The natural outdoors of the Alta Badia area makes it the perfect location to relax. Enjoy a bit of yoga or romantic walks around mountain lakes. We'd recommend taking the cable car high above San Cassiano to snap the most incredible panoramic photographs. 

What to see on a San Cassiano holiday

There's loads to experience in the region from traditional markets and concerts to wine tasting and foodie events. When out on the mountain be sure to visit the mountain huts to try some of the best local dishes. They often have live music, singing and staff wearing traditional Ladin clothes. If you’re looking for a more active adventure, hire a bike and take the lift up to one of the many cycle paths. Tear up the dirt on some exhilarating downhill routes.

Things To Do

Things to see and do in San Cassiano

Set beneath a dramatic mountain backdrop, you could easily spend a day meandering around the pedestrianised streets of San Cassiano taking pictures. Nearby is La Villa, a lovely place for lunch one day and while in the area, visit Castle Ciastel Colz and the old manor house. The 16th century building overlooks La Villa and is an impressive site. 

San Cassiano has a rich history dating back to World War I. Learn about the local area with a visit to the Museum Ladin Ursus ladinicus and look out for fossil remains of a prehistoric bear.

Food & drink 

There's a wide range of places to eat in San Cassiano, from farmhouse restaurants to fine dining, including a Michelin starred restaurant. Traditional local recipes such as Schlutzkrapfen shouldn't be missed. Handmade ravioli filled with spinach is a simple but delicious favourite of ours. 

There's a few bars in resort but for a tipple with a view, head up the lifts and stop in one of the mountain huts. The South Tyrolean region makes a great selection of red and white wines as well as sparkling wines, so there’s plenty of choice when it comes to local labels to try.


There's loads of leisurely walks starting from San Cassiano. Head through meadows and along the scenic trails. For more challenging hikes, the Fanes-Senes-Brais Nature Park or the trails around Lago Lagazuoi are the places to go. Further afield the Sella Group is a stunning set of mountains that are well worth a visit. The views from Brunecker Turm are particularly good, so don't forget to take your camera.

Cycling is a great way to explore the area. Either take to the mountains or head over to neighbouring resort of Corvara for the day and enjoy a refreshing gelato.
