The Alpine scenery in all the hiking area of the Italian Alps are just fabulous. So the question which is your favourite area it is impossible to answer.

    Wonderful Day Hike from Torino!!
    It was the best day during my last trip to Torino! I was traveling by myself and didn’t really plan ahead, the sun came out after a few days of rain and I was thinking “Why not go on a hike?” So I jumped in front of the computer and luckily found Roberto’s website. All of the information on the website is well organised and with great testimonial, in English! This is it! Roberto responded to my email inquiry very efficiently, discussing my expectation, hiking experience and what kind of gear I have. Since I did not bring any gear with me, the next day he came prepared with all the hiking essentials I will need for the day hike! We hiked on the trails close to Bovile. He picked a trail that is not too challenging for a beginner like me, with stunning views as rewards!!! The entire experience was great and I have been inspired to hike almost every weekend since I came back to the Bay Area! Thank you Roberto! I still keep in mind your hiking tips ” Don’t stop until the end” every time I am on the trail exploring new places 🙂Highly recommending Roberto to anyone who is looking for an experienced and fun mountain guide when planning your visit in Torino!
