Ladin (Ladino in Italian, Ladin in Ladin, Ladinisch in German) is a Rhaeto-Romance language spoken in the Dolomite mountains in northern Italy in the border regions of the provinces Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol and Veneto. It is closely related to the Swiss Romansh, Surselvan, and Friulian.

Ladin should not be confused with Ladino (also called Judaeo-Spanish), which is a Romance dialect of Spanish, with Hebrew, Turkish, and Greek influences.

The Ladin spoken in the Fassa Valley (Ladin Val de Fascia, Italian Val di Fassa) is also subdivided into two further branches: "Cazét" (pronounced [kazɛt]) is spoken in the northern half of the valley, whereas "Brach" (pronounced [brak]) is spoken in the southern half. For example, in Cazét water is "ega" ("e" pronounced /ɛ/), whereas in Brach it is "aga".

It is officially recognized in Italy and has some official rights in the region of Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol, while it does not have official status in the province of Belluno (Veneto region).
