VALTELLINA, THE HEART OF THE ALPS

written by Consorzio Turistico Provinciale Sondrio

Ostuni città bianca

Valtellina is a wide alpine region which lies for almost 200 km exactly in the middle of the Alps between Italy and Switzerland, Lombardy and Canton of Grisons (Graubünden).

It is a diversified territory that rises from the 200 m of the top of the Lake of Como to the 4000 m of the Bernina peak offering a multitude of different environments to discover and enjoy.

The wide and sunny bottom of the valley full of fodder and apples changes into terraced vineyards and woods; in the upper part summer pastures and grasslands leave their place to magnificent peaks and glaciers.

The valley offers prestigious proposals for tourists: Livigno, Bormio, S. Caterina Valfurva, Madesimo, Aprica, Teglio, Valmalenco, Valmasino and Valgerola are just few famous localities in this area. Sport, good food, culture and traditions, Spas and many events, everything can be found in Valtellina.....the heart of the Alps.
