  • A magical place where at least once in your life you have to get there. Path is not too difficult if you start from campo imperatore. Mandatory equipment for hiking, water and Sun hats. Not to be missed.

  • For anyone who loves mountain is a must! The climb from the Observatory is challenging enough in the final but the views at the top of the vale, gorgeous!
