Alpe di Siusi, this is not only the name of the high plateau, but also of a village located on the largest high plateau of Europe. Comprising the villages of Saltiria, Compaccia, Giogo and Piz Giogo, the village is located at 1,680 m asl.
The largest hamlet is called Compaccia and is located on the western side of the Alpe di Siuisi. This is also where the mountain station of the Alpe di Siusi funicular is located, moreover there is the Bullaccia cableway and some other lifts. At the east end of the Alpe di Siusi, there is, however, the scattered settlement of Saltiria. Giogo and Piz Giogo offer a series of mountain huts, a visit to which can be perfectly combined with a walk.
