Fiavé is one of the last villages in Comano Dolomites before you reach Lake Garda, a small humble place, home to simple and welcoming people.
In Fiavé you get an authentic taste of rural life. It has an original name. It is thought to derive from the Italian word for beans, or ‘fave’. These days, where beans were once grown, other crops are cultivated in the fields.
The village’s history is rooted in the marshy peat bog where the remains of the 5,000 year-old pile dwellings still stand prudly, it retains an agricultural heart, shaped by a humble and modest history.
This historic-cultural walk through the pile-dwelling settlement in Fiavé is one of the 111 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Alps, follows a trail across the whole natural reserve which is an important site for the region.
