The Assietta Road S. P. 173

Along the ridge that gathers Pian dell’Alpe to Sestriere separating Chisone Valley from Susa Valley, the Assietta Road - a military carriageway - unfolds for over 60 km, almost entirely over 2000 meters above the sea level.
Travelling on the Assietta road offers a unique chance to discover some of the most significant historical landmarks of one of the most striking corner of Western Alps. From the Escartons Republic to Savoy sovereignty, from religious conflicts to the rich biodiversity of alpine pastures and Orsiera-Rocciavr� and Gran Bosco of Salbertrand protected areas, to the Via Alpina striking paths (www.via-alpina.com), to the cyclotourist and horse tourist trails; from the impressive fortified system to the avantgarde architectural and sacred art expressions of Upper Susa Valley. An incredible historical, artistic, environmental and recreative itinerary. The road is travelled each year by hundreds of passionated excursionists, bikers, cyclists, mainly coming from abroad (Germany) and recently it is undergoing a development process directed to improve its usability.
