 Pont di Valsavarenche (Gran Paradiso)   

Among the sloping woodland, with its majestic Gran Paradiso massif (4,061 m) the only ’4,000’ peak in all of Italy, offering a natural amphitheatre that dominates and characterises the landscape. This narrow, 24 kilometre long valley is a real paradise for lovers of nature and everything that is still authentic, wild and people-friendly. From Pont di Valsavarenche mountaineers leave for their Gran Paradiso ascents. Valsavarenche is definitely one of the most visited districts for excursionists, who can avail of a number of easily, passable paths; there are plenty of mountaineering destinations. The majority of the tracks still in use today were built (with support walls, base in stone and ditches to allow rainwater to flow) by the House of Savoy royals who would come here hunting.
