Right outside of Turin- Superga

Superga - Hiking Path
@evelyn
Superga is one of the easiest hikes to reach near Torino. It is of course also accessible by bus and funicular, but the hike up let’s you appreciate the view and experience a bit better. Take the 61 from Torino Piazza Castello until the stop Corce. You’ll then need to back track just 2 minutes before you reach the beginning of Sentiero 29, just before the San Mauro town sign. Heading up this way you can follow the signs and choose a few different versions of the path.

A little further out - Sacra di San Michele

Sacra di San Michele - Antica mulattiera
@evelyn
A fairly easy hike with a rewarding experience at the top. You can also choose to do the Via Ferrata which will be longer, but offers a more intense and exciting experience. If you want to reach the Sacra di San Michele by hiking, here are a few ways to approach it. From Sant’Ambrogio di Torino With a 600-meter altitude gain, for a hike of about 1.5 hours. Take the train from Torino to Sant’Ambrogio Torinese, from there take via Caduti per la Patria, unti the end where you will turn right and reach the Parrocchia di San Giovanni Vincenzo. You’ll find the start of the path behind this. From Chiusa San Michele Take the train from Torino to Condove-Chiusa di San Michele, and head towards the town center until you reach the Parrocchia di San Pietro Apostolo, where the path begins to the right.

A long Day Trip-

Lago Verde - from Bardonecchia
@evelyn
This hike is a bit of a trip, as you will need to get a train, then either a taxi or walk 2.5 hours each way. You can take a train directly to Bardonecchia, from the train station it takes about 2.5 hours to walk to Lago Verde, or you can try to catch a ride to the nearest parking lot - Pian Del Colle. From the parking it is only a 1.5 hour walk each way.

A weekend or overnight -

Gran Paradiso - Colle del Nivolet
@evelyn
A gorgeous spot inside Gran Paradiso park. You can catch a shuttle from the lowest parking lot or hike your way up. Many come as far as here to just relax. But if you are up for it this is the starting point for a number of sentieri of all difficulties. Getting there without a car is long, but fairly easy. First, you will need to take a train to Noasca by way of Rivarolo, then get the blue GTT bus from Noasca to Gran Paradiso Park. This will take you through Ceresole Reale and straight up to the beautiful Colle del Nivolet. Since it is a long trek, I do suggest booking a night at one of the local rifugi within the park, or at a hotel down in Ceresole Reale. This way you can take your time to explore different hikes through the weekend.

Ready to experience an Italy beyond what you've seen on a screen? Having lived in Italy for over 12 years, I love sharing the special moments that make each distinct Italian region stand out. The best part of traveling to Italy is discovering a whole new world in each region you visit. 🍷Located in Piedmont, I specialize in Northern Italy travel, with a focus on wine travel. Whether you're interested in wine tasting in the famous Langhe region, exploring Tuscany's rolling hills, discovering the excellent Rosati of Puglia, or savoring wines from anywhere in between - I'm here to make your trip unforgettable. 🤓In addition to learning about Italy's incredible wines, you can expect fun and nerdy facts from my guides, as I am a graduate in archaeology and art history. 🏔️Since I could never limit myself to one niche, I'm also a huge fan of the outdoors, climbing, and hiking. I love sharing the best of the Italian Alps with you, whether you're a beginner seeking a breath of fresh mountain air or an experienced adventurer looking for local insights. 📍Here you'll find extensive city guides, niche tours, regional wine guides, and much more! And if you're looking for something tailored specifically to you, check out my custom travel services! --- 💭About me: I'm originally from Middlebury Vermont but came to Italy at age 18 to study. As you can tell I never looked back. I've lived in Rome, Pompeii, Florence, Milan, and now I call Piedmont home with my family: myself, my Italian boyfriend, our adorable 1 year old, and the real star: Kiki our pup. _ If you dream of turning your Italy trip into a permanent move, I am an expat guide who helps individuals make Italy their home. From the visa process to the move, from setting up a bank account to understanding the healthcare system, I can assist you. Find out more on my website linked below.
