    Hiking above the sea with the view to the Alps!

    Mount Priafaia is a small but extremely scenic summit in the Monte Beigua Natural Park in Liguria. From this peak during the clear winter days you can admire both the Alps and the sea in the same time thanks to the dry winter air. The name is difficult to pronounce for an Italian, who knows for a foreigner! The name means stone of the beeches: Pria means stone while Faia means beech in an ancient local dialect.

  • BARBA FERRERO REFUGE AND ALPE TESTANERA

    Monte Rosa

    At the foot of Monte Rosa south face in Valsesia, Piedmont

    Monte Rosa, after Mont Blanc, is the second highest peak in the Alps. To tell the truth, Punta Doufur which is the highest in the Rosa massif would be the third highest peak because, just lower than the top of Mont Blanc, it would be the Mont Blanc of Courmayeur. If we talk about the entire massifs, which are, a group of peaks, then Monte Rosa is the second highest massif in the Alps.
