Description

This province includes much of the Northwest lobe of Italy. It's part of the region of Piemonte / Piedmont. Most famous for its big city, it also has lots of climbing of all varieties, but not much of it with English-language guidebooks as of 2017.

Not far to drive from the northern French Alps or from west Switzerland, and often has different weather, so sometimes used as an "escape" by climbers in those nearby regions.

Perhaps most well-known to outsiders is the "big wall" granite area of

For alpine, it contains half of Gran Paradiso national park, though the summit of Gran Paradiso (highest peak whose base lies entirely within Italy) is just a bit outside this province to the north. Also the great dramatic-looking peak of Monte Viso is just outside to the southwest.

Also some good Via Ferrata routes nearby, see via ferrata of the Piemonte region, also via ferrata of the Valle d'Aosta region.

Getting There

Most obvious way is to fly or take train to the big city of Torino / Turin.

Could also fly to major airports Geneva or Milano/Milan and drive to the Piemonte region.
