Introducing The Milky Way
Neither a chocolate bar nor a galaxy of stars, Piedmont's Milky Way (Via Lattea) consists of two parallel valleys just west of Turin that offer top-notch skiing facilities. The more northern of the two, Valle di Susa, meanders past a moody abbey, the old Celtic town of Susa and pretty mountain villages. Its southern counterpart, the Valle di Chisone, is pure ski-resort territory. The valleys hosted many events at the 2006 Winter Olympics, and the facilities and infrastructure are state of the art.
