Piedmont's Cammino di Oropa

A Cammino for Everyone, in Undiscovered Piedmont

The Cammino di Oropa is among our travellers' favorite trips: beautiful and surprising, just one hour drive from Milan and in Piedmont,  perfect for those who are on their first walking holiday.

This territory is a place of untamed beauty, between the amphitheatre of Serra Morenica range and the rugged peaks of Alpi Biellesi: four stages, all different, from forests to open pastures, from fortified Medieval hamlets to Marian shrines in the mountains.

The trip ends at the Oropa Sanctuary, among the most important places of Marian worship in the world: with its botanical gardens and rock walls filled with colorful ex-voto to the Black Madonna, this is the perfect ending to a surpising trip.
