    The Dolomites

    Vertical, sharp, jagged, grandiose, these are four adjectives that perfectly qualify the Dolomites, a chain of limestone mountains listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2009. Located on the Austrian border, straddling the provinces of Trentino Alto Adige, Veneto and Friuli, the Dolomites massif is made up of steep cliffs and more than 18 peaks over 3000 meters.
  • The summit of Gran Paradiso

    Gran Paradiso

    At over 4000m above sea level, Gran Paradiso is the highest peak in Italy. With no technical climbing skills required, this peak is a great introduction to alpine mountaineering.
  • Cinque Terre

    Cinque Terre

    Between Pisa in Tuscany and Genoa in Ligure, stretches one of the most beautiful coasts of the Mediterranean, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997: the Cinque Terre National Park. Monterosso, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Riomaggiore. These 5 villages are linked together by picturesque paths and stairs, which meander through the scrub and terraces covered with lemon trees, olive trees and vines.
