Vigo di Fassa is a hamlet in Val di Fassa, province of Trento; it is among the most beautiful villages in Italy.
The village is part of the famous Dolomiti Superski, the largest skiing district in the world. However, there are also many beautiful summer excursions to be made in the Catinaccio massif. Ciampedie is located here at about 2,000 metres above sea level, and provides a base for walking trips. This area is served by a modern cableway that leaves from the village centre and takes just a few minutes to reach the Ciampedie basin. The Larsech and the Torri del Vajolet can be admired from here.
The village started to become a tourist destination with the construction of the Statale delle Dolomiti in 1860, The latter initially attracted a prevalence of Austrian tourists, but is now known all over the world thanks to splendid ski resorts and excellent hotel facilities.
Vigo di Fassa is one of those villages that maintains many traditions of Ladin culture including, and especially, the language.
