How to reach the Fassa Valley using city bus services
There are two main bus companies serving the Val di Fassa: Atesina of Trento and SAD (Alto Adige). These two lines depart respectively from the railway stations of Trento and Bolzano. Although further away from the Val di Fassa, the Atesina line leaving from Trento offers more services than the SAD line from Bolzano. Be sure to check the timetables of each line on the relevant web sites.
In peak tourist periods, there are also other services running a direct daily route into the Val di Fassa from several Italian cities. These are: Autostradale from Milan, Bergamo, and Brescia; Brusutti from Venice, Mestre, and Treviso; STAT from Savona, Genoa, Piacenza, and Cremona; SITA from Siena, Florence, Bologna, and Modena; ACT from Reggio Emilia and Parma; Lorenzini from Lucca, Pisa, Leghorn, Parma, La Spezia, Massa, Reggio Emilia, and Mantua. In this case too, it is a good idea to contact the relevant bus or coach company for more information about travelling conditions, timetables, prices and above all, to make reservations, which are almost always obligatory.
In winter, it is possible to travel on the Skibus service throughout the day among the various towns and villages of the Val di Fassa as well as to the different skiing resorts. In this case too, there are numerous services and it is important to contact the local tourist offices in the Val di Fassa for more information about the travelling conditions and timetables for the different services during the day.
Throughout the summer season, the Atesina Viaggi agency organises half-day excursions on luxury coaches. The destinations available are all in the Dolomites and include the Sella Pass – Ortisei and Lake Carezza – Sanctuary of Pietralba. The agency also organises day trips to Salzburg, Merano and Botanical Gardens, Innsbruck, Grand Tour of the Dolomites, Munich, the Val Badia, and King Ludwig’s Castle in Neuschwanstein.
