  Colle di Sampeyre
by ant1606

Piedmont has many valleys and some of these are the least visited. If you care for something off the beaten path try Colle di Sampeyre at 2284 m a.s.l.
Narrow road and great views. Late May snow possible.

Link with uphill graph:

Directions: Ax. 130 Km south of Turin. Enter Varaita Valley from Busca and reach the village of Sampeyre. Take a road to the left and climb up the pass. Downhill through Elva to Stroppo waterfall in Maira Valley. From here, back to Turin. Round trip ax. 270 Km.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
