Casateia

Casateia is an ideal starting point for experiencing the landscape. The Valgiovo takes its course from Casateia to Passo del Giovo.

Driving from Vipiteno into the Val Ridanna, you immediately come upon the village of Casateia, located at 973 m. Some 430 people live in this component locality, which represents a good starting point for experiencing the surroundings. Only a stone’s throw away, there are the upper Ridanna valley, Racines and the city of Vipiteno. In winter, however, the village is connected to the circular cross-country ski run Casateia-Stanghe-Mareto. Also the copious Racines-Giovo skiing area with modern facilities is within easy reach.

Also the Valgiovo pass road takes its course from Casateia. The eleven hairpin bends leading to the pass are particularly popular with motorbikers, but also cyclists love this course. With an average drop of 7.6 % and great panoramic views on the Stubai and Sarentino Alps, it is one of the top ten Alpine passes for cyclists. In winter, the mountain pass is closed from 6 pm to 8 am.
