  • A Sunday drive in the beautiful val Chisone. passing through the plateau of Pian dell'Alpe arrived at the pass from where you can admire the two valleys of Susa and Chisone. by means of a road you can switch from one Valley to another.

  • 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
