“IL GIRO DEL VISO” the tour of Viso

Did anyone ever tell you that a trekking lasting more days around a cliff was developed right by the Monviso’s foot? During 1839 James David Forbes, professor in biology and natural philosophy of Edinburgh University, undertook a long journey within the Alps. Coolidge told: ”He started is walking from Marseilles climbing along the valleys of Durance e of Ubaye up to Bacellonette, crossed at the head of that valley the Col of Cula reaching Saint Veran and so Abries in Valley of Guil He did the “Tour of Monte Viso” going through many difficult paths and excursions: the “Col of Traversette, the Col of Viso, the Walk of Sagnette or the Walk of San Chiaffredo and the one of Vallanta”.
