Are you thinking of a destination where to spend your holidays in the mountains, perhaps with your children?
Are your dreaming of a V.I.P. holiday made of downhill skiing and incredible snowboarding evolution? Breathtaking views with snowy mountains and flawless hotel accommodations? Unforgettable delicatessen and rejuvenating treatments at the best spas?
In Italy you have so many places to choose from, and My Tours in Rome helps you by offering a wide range of specific packages dedicated to the snow, for the whole ski sport season.
There is no flap of the Italian territory that has never seen a few flakes of snow fall.
Even the same Lampedusa, the southernmost island, has experienced snow.
And it is not surprising then that every area of the peninsula, North Central and South has its ski resorts, thanks to the Alps and Apennines chains.
The latter cuts longitudinally the peninsula creating the geographical distribution of the slopes among the Tyrrhenian and Adriatic coasts.
The Winter holiday season begins in the mountains with the Feast of the Immaculate Conception weekend (December 8th), and generally ends with Easter.
If you are really in love with the mountains, and you wish to spend also your Summer holidays in these parts of the World, please consider that the season begins around June 20th, and ends in late September.
For reasons of climate and geography, however, are the Northern regions to hold the record of the snow: the cloister Alpine guarantees plenty of snow and lower temperatures, the essential ingredients for a successful ski vacation and a holiday week.
Glaciers also allow summer skiing as is the case in Plateau Rosa, Passo del Tonale and the Stelvio and Val Senales Piedmont, Lombardy, Veneto, Friuli, the Alpine valleys are home-equipped ski resorts and state of the art for their plants and the hotel facilities.
Some names are now a living legend of winter sports: Sestriere and the entire Milky Way, Courmayeur and Breuil Cervinia, Livigno and the Same, Madonna di Campigio, Folgarida and Marilleva, Plan de Corones, the gems of the Val di Fassa, Arabba and Corvara , until you get to the Dolomites of Cortina and the beautiful places in the eastern Alps, as Sappada and Tarvisio.
The Apennines, however, is able to provide viable alternatives to the alpine resorts: for example Abetone, Monte Cimone and Roccaraso have nothing to envy to the most renowned resorts of northern Italy, and offer slopes for all levels of skiers and snowboarders as well as modern snowmaking equipment.
Other points to remember skiing down the peninsula are the other places of Abruzzo (Prati di Tivo and Campo Imperatore), Campitello Matese, as well as the Sila plateau, in Calabria, and the centers of Fonni and Etna with regard to the major islands of Italy.
The mountain in Italy has varied and fascinating landscapes for touring both in Summer and in Winter.
The fabulous Italian mountain landscapes range from thick forests and Alpine lakes, to small mountain villages rich in tradition, typical architecture and history, where you can find handicrafts and gastronomy of great value.
