Valle Varaita

The aim of this issue is to bring to the attention not only foreigners, more and more numerous in our area, but also to the Cuneo area inhabitants, a greater deepening of the history, culture and landscape of this south-western strip of Piedmont.

In these pages divided by areas, we will describe some of the cities and towns of the province of Cuneo, each marked with their own map and told through the historical past, the beautiful landscapes and monuments to be visited, along with ideas about the industries and commercial activities that constitute the socio-economic fabric.

In short, a guide that offers tourist itineraries, which from the rolling hills of Langhe and Roero, explore the productive plains of Fossanese and Saviglianese, up to the numerous Alpine valleys of the Cuneo, Monregalese and Saluzzese areas, which can be visited both in summer and in winter.
