  • Yesterday returned from the trip. Amazingly beautiful places! Alps tall, covered with snow, streams and rivers, waterfalls and lakes, monasteries and churches-all was interesting. Pomegranate tree blossoms hang young inzhirchiki, coffee tree is covered with pimples red berries, walnut ... And bushes of colourful hydrangeas with giant hats! Train ride forced Susa went traveled to ancient ruins, visited the ghost town of Bussanu, which was destroyed in the year 1887, nadyshalis warm mountain air. Turin was in a 45-minute drive in a very convenient train ticket costs 3.60 in side 1. Walked there 5 museums, speaking of the Egyptian Museum on the Internet read, that ticket 7.50 euro, but actually turned out to be 15 euros and without the walkie-talkie in Russian ... It's a shame ... But the Royal Palace pleased-and Chambers, and archaeological Department and Thrift Hall in huge horsemen with armor and Plumed helmet, and a gallery of Italian artists. The halls were not hot, but not cold, and light enough for viewing pictures, not that other European museums, where twilight ... The main thing that was with a water and photo or video camera. 100% satisfied!

  • Small but very characteristic, many activities to do in the right season, is gorgeous the upper Valley in the winter: offers many sport activities, restaurants, but also some nightclub. In summer it is to walk in the true sense of the word, in fact the via francigena forks in Susa, for true pilgrims you can go straight from oulx at avigliana with various milestones for sleep. Many packages to be biking the many trails with breathtaking climbs throughout the Valley, surely the most spectacular is the one that leads up to the sacra di san Michele (must see)

  • The Valley of Susa is the Northwest region that starts the crossing between Italy and France. All decked by the mountains of the Alps and the river Dora Riparia tributary of the Po River.

  • Beautiful Alpine Valley, especially the upper Susa Valley, for those who like to hike in the mountains. The lower part is more urbanized so you lose a bit of the cultural environment that allows you to immerse yourself in nature but are the routes, such as the Musinè, for those who want to leave the city without making too many kilometers
