IT: Round trip Fortress Mountaineering in Piemont

Fortress Giants in the Alpine Landscape of Piemont

 

Monuments at high mountain peaks - in deep canyons - at steep slopes

The marvellous Alpine region in northwest of Italy is a place for everyone and has much to offer. It is a journey for nature lovers into rich natural resources spoiling with clean water, pure air and beautiful surroundings. It is a journey for sport enthusiasts sliding slopes downhill in the winter or a journey for mountaineers in the summer going up to almost inaccessible paths.

 

Embedded in the extraordinary alpine region of north-west Italy, there are impressive and mighty fortified titans that wait to be discovered by fortress climbers and fortress mountaineers. It is also a journey into ancient history reflecting culture, society and old traditions. Our recommendation leads to Verres, Bard, Turin, Fenestrelle, Exilles and Susa.

Travelling through the beautiful scenery with the mighty stronghold of Mantua, the bicycle route closes with a pearl of fortification construction, the Fortified Ideal City Sabbioneta.
