Italy, territory of summits and peaks.

In all its territorial diversity, Italy has a large number of beautiful and evocative mountain locations, ideal to visit all year round, whether it is summer or winter. From north to south, the Italian mountain landscape offers tourists a range of landscapes: lakes on high altitutude, incredible forests, enchanting villages and Borgo rich in history, traditions and, of course, gastronomic delights.

Sports, fun and relaxation can perfectly combine in a mountain holiday in the Bel Paese, both in the snow and in the circumstances of the fairer seasons.
Most of the mountain retreats in Italy invites visitors to experience a wide range of cultural and outdoor activities every season: skiing, alpine skiing, snowboarding, hiking and Nordic walking, mountain biking… Not to mention excellent structures for skating, swimming, tennis, horse riding… The list just goes on!

The Alps

The large European mountain range rises in the far north of Italy and defines the geographic boundary. The imposing Alpenrug runs through a number of regions, from Liguria to the Aosta Valley, Piedmont, Lombardy, Trentino Alto Adige, Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia.


This mountain range connects the two ends of Italy, from Liguria to Calabria, it runs through Emilia Romagna, Tuscany, Lazio, Abruzzo, Campania, Basilicata, Umbria and Molise. The mountains of the Apennines are not as high as the peaks of the Alps, but they are nevertheless home to some important ski resorts, such as Roccaraso, Campo Felice and Rivisondoli.

The dense vegetation and the many watercourses create exceptionally beautiful, wild landscapes, where there is also an abundance of animals.
