The resort of Canazei in the Italian Dolomites
This year celebrates the 25th anniversary of Sounds of the Dolomites (28 June - 15 September 2019), a unique, open-air music festival, partly hosted in Canazei. It brings renowned musicians from around the globe to perform in ‘natural theatres’, combining art with the environment. In a concert programme that celebrates freedom and nature, music is performed in carefully-selected areas, after the artists walk up alongside their audience to pay homage to their stunning surroundings.
Nestled in amongst a rugged terrain between the Marmolada and Sella mountains, Canazei offers adventures for all ages and abilities. The four-star Hotel Cesa Tyrol is superbly equipped for cyclists and mountain bikers, and offers daily guided bike tours for guests.
A popular ski circuit in wintertime, guests can use a summer lift pass to explore the famous Sella Ronda by bike. There are also endless routes to enjoy on foot! Famed not simply for its sports, Val di Fassa, the valley in which Canazei is located, is home to dozens of spas, one of the newest additions being the huge Terme Dolomia in Pozzo di Fassa, which uses the waters from the Alloch thermal spring.
Inghams offers a seven-night holiday to Canazei this summer, on a half board basis at the four-star Hotel Cesa Tyrol, from £999 per person. Price includes return flights and airport transfers. To book, visit www.inghams.co.uk/lakes-mountains-holidays or call 01483 494 826.
