From the Alps to the sea
The great outdoors between Italy & France
The area along the border between Italy and France is full of stunning scenery just waiting to be explored. From Mont Blanc to the Côte d'Azur and to the Ligurian Riviera, from Italy to France and through the Torino and Cuneo valleys and the Alta Langa hills, it is a land of majestic peaks, pristine lakes, rolling hills, crystal clear seas, spectacular landscapes and breath-taking paths.
The area between Italy and France provides a wealth of different settings and backdrops that are ideal for the development of outdoor tourism, offering an extensive network of experiences, hikes and activities to be enjoyed unconfined in the great outdoors. With such a wide variety of opportunities, this area is truly the great outdoors, offering a new way of doing tourism through an "experiential" approach to nature and an integrated offer that combines sport, good food, cultural heritage and the discovery of local traditions.
We are talking about a vast, uninterrupted area that is united by deep trans-regional ties. These ties make it possible to combine environments and traditions from different but adjacent cultures, and to multiply experiences and opportunities for personal enrichment. Through an extensive network of joint initiatives between France and Italy, the area is ideal for fans of outdoor activities and can offer adventures to satisfy all tastes, even the most demanding, such as trekking, climbing, cycling, hiking in parks or along scenic routes, rafting and fishing. Sporting activities are combined with cultural routes and the discovery of the deep connection between different traditions, in a place where it is possible to embrace Italian and French heritage, both rich in history and charm. France and Italy together with a single goal: to make the most of the geographical and cultural wealth of the great outdoors, to offer a fresh perspective on nature and on tourism which is experiential, sustainable and within everyone's reach.
