An impressive view over the Alps

If you want to reach the highest tips of the Alps you must go to Italy (although the location of the highest cliff of Mount Blanc is still an open controversy between Italy and France): Mont Blanc, Matterhorn and the Pink Mount are all in Italy, (although they are accessible also from France and Swizterland)

Turin: an amazing bike tour

Last time I wrote about a bike tour of Turin I described the amazing Park of Valentino and its attractions. This time I took a completely different route, 90% of which on reserved bike lanes which led me from my home, close to Piazza Statuto (Constitution square), one of the most important hubs of the city, straight to the Hunting Lodge of Stupinigi, just outside the city borders, 11 km to the south (6 miles).
