  • 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.

  • The Susa Valley preserve natural views that are worth a visit. This time we chose to visit the Refuge Amprimo; to reach it you have two possibilities: we opted for Bussoleno. Leaving the highway to Frejus exit in Bussoleno and you go on route 24, here, you take the junction (easy to find, since just before the cemetery) for fraction Baroni: 10 km very winding road and often dirt road until you reach a clearing of parking. From this point go up a trail for about fifteen minutes and you reach the Pian Cervetto (a handful of houses) for a quick stop and then climb to the sanctuary Amprimo which is about twenty minutes of walking (less cumbersome previous tract). The shelter, which opened in 1937 and renovated several times, offers the possibility of about fifty beds and a small restaurant with local specialities. But, above all, in front of the refuge stretches a vast plateau to unwind and enjoy the sunny day surrounded by silence and peace. A walk at all challenging but full of pleasant moments.
