The landscapes of this mountain area are just spectacular and even thought here are not anymore glaciers, the peaks above 3000 meters are present and the landscapes in Monviso, Margueris, Alpi Marittime National Park are just gorgeous. Paths are pretty well marked usually and because the altitudes are less than in Aosta Valley region (Gran Paradiso, Monte Bianco, etc) they can be a nice option when there is a lot of snow in winter trekking.
As in Turin Alps Hiking Area also in the South Piedmont Hiking Area the tourism is mainly from locals and that makes the mountains much less crowded and pretty authentic experience to live. This hiking area is at the border with Liguria, a region mainly known for its beautiful riviera over the Mediterranean sea. Souther Piedmont Hiking is a perfect opportunity for your holidays to do trekking in the mountains and after the hiking tour is finished, go relaxing at the seaside at Cinque Terre or in any other nice town in Liguria.
