CANAZEI, a buzzing summer and winter resort at the head of the Val di Fassa (wfassa.com) is a stepping stone to the stupendous high road passes between here and Cortina d’Ampezzo. You may also find yourself staying here before or after walking in the Gruppo di Sella or strolling along a much easier trail – the Viel del Pan opposite glacier-topped Marmolada.
