From Pont, Valsavarenche, Vittorio Emanuele II refuge can be easily reached in a couple of hours also from "inexpert climbers". At 2.735 mt you will find two shelters, the old, present since 1884 and the new, opened in 1961, represent the ideally location for ascents, both spring and summer towards the chain of Gran Paradiso.

It's possible to sleep there (more than 150 people during summer).

Open from 23/03/2011 to 08/05/2011

Address: At 2735 mt on the way to Gran Paradiso Mountain
Directions: Loc. Moncorvè, 11010 Valsavarenche
Phone: +39 016595920 (summer)
