  • Get there by bike from Sestriere via val Chisone. Hard climb but not very long, time often variable and fresh. Also suitable for outings and picnics in summer.

  • I was in Turin and I had to go to a designated place from my friends doing Cuneo .... but my sat chooses a different route makes me having to Meana ... Fortunately. The entrance to the road the first piece in the middle of the Woods, then bend after bend begins the white road and I was also afraid of getting lost. Then I met a cyclist touched ... thank goodness some sign of life, at last I see the Summit after several kilometers. spectacular. Arrived at the Summit and previous anxiety turns to elation for having a road like it. ... Highly recommended

  • What about sn was on the occasion of the giro d ' italia ... all beautiful ... exciting very impressive the vetta....si very suitable also x the bike there is a fairly flat route that leads from the district just below the Summit. Pristine landscape. Recommend a stop at the bar well stocked with local produce and such generosity!
