From the Brennero Motorway to Moena in 45 minutes
The most important, smooth-flowing road is the SS (state road) 48. After exiting the Brennero motorway (A22) at Egna – Ora, you will come to the SS 48 in just a short time. Continue through the Val di Fiemme until you reach the first town in the Val di Fassa: Moena. (Ora-Moena: 45 km).
The route is simple, since there are no difficult passes and the road is only steep in the first section, from Egna to Cavalese. Immediately after exiting the motorway at Egna/Ora, follow the signs to Cavalese, passing an Alto Adige town (Villa) and continuing up to Cavalese. The first section runs alongside a mountain and the views are immediately breathtaking, especially because it is possible to gaze out over the large plain of the Val d’Adige from this altitude and to see the city of Bolzano in the distance (be careful! Don’t forget to keep your eyes on the road). After this first section, the road, which continues uphill, enters a wood. After around 20 km from the motorway, there is a fork just before you come to Cavalese; it is important to take the tunnel leading to the road at the bottom of the valley; this is a fast-flowing state road that avoids crossing all of the towns and villages in the Val di Fiemme.
Ten minutes or so are all it takes to cross the entire Val di Fiemme and arrive in the vicinity of Predazzo. Just a little way past the longest tunnel (more than 1.5 km), you will come to a roundabout that allows you to bypass the centre of Predazzo, thanks to the new bypass. Once past the ski jump hills of Predazzo you are now close to your destination. After just a few kilometres you will come to the first town in the Val di Fassa: Moena. At times it is an arduous task to cross the centre of Moena at the height of the tourist season, therefore, we always recommend that, if at all possible, you do not set out when everybody else is doing so. In any case, a bypass is currently being built at Moena and in a few years’ time, this will represent another important element in improving the road network in the Val di Fassa.
