Rich in side valleys, Val Camonica is one of the widest valleys of central Alps and is entirely crossed by Oglio River that flows into Sebino. Included in the province of Brescia (except for a minimum part under the province of Bergamo), it owes its name to the ancient Camuni, authors of the engravings that are the major rock art site in Europe. There are several parks where you can admire them, like students and visitors do every year. In particular, in 1979 UNESCO declared the highest concentration zone a protected site.
SPORTS AND RELAX
In winter, ski resorts of Ponte di Legno, Borno, Montecampione, Aprica and Val Palot are amazing, in summer there are so many different paths for hiking you’ll be spoilt for choice!
Finally, for your relax, you can try the thermal and wellness centres of Boario and Angolo Terme, or have a walk among the Roman ruins in Cividate Camuno, Romanesque sanctuaries and Renaissance churches.
FLORA AND FAUNA
Many other national natural parks, rich in flora and fauna, deserve to be mentioned. Among these, “Parco nazionale dello Stelvio”, “Parco regionale dell’Adamello”, “Parco dell’Alto Sebino” and “Parco del Lago Moro”.
