I was only here a few months back, came up from the coast then towards Chamonix with a night in Pré-Saint-Didier, promised myself I would never, ever travel in this area without a motorcycle ever again. So trip booked on for Sept '19

the night before we stayed in Cuneo Italy.. a bit of a classic Italian Town




loving the photos and RR

You are right: Cuneo is a classic Italian town! Worth a vist.


Thanks for following my trip.

I came to Italy to get away from the bad weather forecast. But when I went for breakfast their was drizzling rain. But here was a perfect breakfast offered by Alfio who is super nice.





Alfio has his house in very good shape and I recommend to go there. But be prepared to speak a few words of Italian or French, cause these are Alfio's languages. Problem for me, but we both managed to get along.


So out into the wet. The plan was to go up the valley and cross the Petit Saint Bernard.






Before Saint Bernard I wanted to explore the valley Jovencan or Vertosan north of Avise. There is Lo Grand Baou a restaurant and hotel at the end and they said that you come along on tarmac or gravel. Plan was gravel.
But the weather turned not to the dry side. Driving up the Valle d'Aosta the drizzle turned to rain and clouds.

I left the main road for Avise and started into the tornantis. After some km I passed a sign for the vista of the Mont Blanc. First my views .... followed by a picture of someone with more luck.













In the hamlet Verdun the gravel starts. It was still raining, the first 50 m looked not very promsing, I was on my own on a loaded bike, so I chickened out.

That says enough about the place...care to share some of that cheese, please

The map shows your route via the little Colle San Carlo instead of the St. Bernard, much nicer!
