Living in the mountains myself, I am very much of a mountain person. If you love nature, and you love to hike on mountain trails, the Italian Alps will satisfy your desire during a vacation in Italy.
Did you know… the Alps (Alpi in Italian) stretch across no less than 8 European countries. (Italy, Switzerland, France, Germany, Liechtenstein, Slovenia, Austria, and Monaco.
The best known mountain in the Alps is without a doubt the Mont Blanc, which stands at 15,781 feet and spans the French-Italian border.
If you like to hike, the Italian Alps will be like a special treat. The Paradisio National Park is located just above Turin and offers great hiking opportunities. If you want to go on a hike for a few days, you can stay in the mountain refuges which are run by the Italian Alpine Club.
The refuges provide breakfast and evening meals, and they will also pack a lunch for you to take on your hike to the next refuge.
Hiking in the Italian Alps is a perfect way to get away from the stress that daily life brings. It is healthy, and very relaxing, and of course, it is beyond beautiful.The views are breath taking.
