The Valtellina Region is a large alpine area between Italy and Switzerland, in the very heart of the Alps. The large and sunny valley, cultivated with apple trees and forage, is also characterized by vineyards and woods, which little by little leave the place toalpine meadows and glaciers.
Mountain dews, hill countries, lakes, are the edge of a mid mountain with its historical routes: via Spluga and via Bregaglia. The High Rezia with the Poschiavo Valley, the Stelvio Pass, the Aprica Pass and the S. Mark Pass open a series of primary and secondary paths, of thematic lanes, forests, chestnut forests, ancient inhabited hamlets; but also caves, grazings, terraces, vineyards, towers and castles. Finally, down the valley, the flat areas with the rivers Adda, Mera and many other minor ones, mark the trail of green itineraries, bicycle and pedestrian paths of the main centres down the valley, and are the unique background of a wonderful and rich cultural heritage.
