A stone’s throw from Italy

By foot along the hiking trails, by car, bus or train, Italy is really close by! During your stay in Haute Maurienne Vanoise, take the time to visit Susa, Bardonecchia or even Turin, which is not so far away!

Italy nearby

Motorists and motorcyclists, we invite you to pass through Italy via the Col du Mont-Cenis, a route traced by Napoleon of which there are still some remains.

10 km from Val Cenis, the plateau of Mont-Cenis offers itself to you and reveals its majestic landscapes. if you are in a hurry, you can take the 13.6 km long Fréjus road tunnel between Modane and Bardonecchia and continue on the highway until Turin.

In one hour, you will be there! otherwise, you can take the time to discover the neighbouring country by the hiking trails that were once used by peddlers and herds of animals.

Our neighbours and friends

The exchanges with our Italian neighbours have always been an opportunity for intense and warm moments, we are all mountain people at heart and we all enjoy sharing a mass at the top of Rochemelon or meeting at the Susa market on Tuesday morning!
