- Gateway to the Alps for winter sports
Ideal destination for easy access to the superb ski resorts in the Alps including Via Lattea, Cervinia-Zermatt, Sauze D’Oulx and Sestriere.
- Visit the Egyptian Museum
Thought to be the best collection of Egyptian artefacts outside of Cairo which include fascinating reconstructions of ancient burial chambers.
- Climb Monte dei Cappuccini for spectacular views over the city to the snow-capped Alps.
This was once the site of a fort, later becoming a monastery and later still the home of the Club Alpino Italiano, who set up a Museum of the Mountains here. Visit the monastery's church, scene of vicious fighting in the seventeenth century, or simply sit and enjoy the view in a peaceful break from the hubbub of the city.
