Insider Valle Camonica

Seven tips for travelling in Valle Camonica to discover the favourite destinations of those who know it well.

The corner of Valle Camonica that has stolen my heart? “Pian di Neve. In winter it is a desert of ice. It gives you a sense of infinity”.

Icaro Pigolotti is our Insider in Valle Camonica, one of the most beautiful valleys in Lombardy. His passions? Photography, sport, mountains. But also the small villages halfway up the valley, walks with snowshoes, thrilling descents, distant horizons... Here is his ranking: seven experiences not to be missed, accompanied by his beautiful images. Have you already decided where to go to first?

To discover other destinations outside the usual routes follow #INSIDERinLombardia on the social networks. With us, apart from Icaro, there is a large team of “photo ambassadors” invited to tell you about cities, mountains, lakes, villages, first-hand experiences.
