Alps - Courmayeur, Valsavarenche, Valtournenche and Aosta
Discover the beautiful white landscape, a 4000mt mountain peak which is surprisingly accessible thanks to its not too steep slopes – at Valtournenche. Located between Italy, France and Switzerland, this mountain offers truly amazing panorama and will be a lasting mark in your memory. Suitable for everyone who's reasonably fit.
Fun fact: An Estonian tourist, known only as Pavel, apparently got a little too drunk and accidentally climbed the mountain while trying to find his hotel!
Dolomites – Abano Terme, Galzignano Terme
Visit the Monastery of San Daniele, built in 1078 by the Signori di Montagnone, who dedicated the Monastery to the martyr and deacon, Daniele. Through the Centuries it has not always been a monastery, it has been even house of nobles and only in the XXI century it was given back to Church who made it home of the Benedictine nuns.
