Alpe Varrone
After the steepest part, the vegetation becomes sparse, giving way to the pastures. On the right side of the valley there are the old abandoned iron mines; the cheesemakers produce the Bitto in the dairy hut. We have arrived at Alpe Varrone: on the left you can find the Casera Vecchia” mountain refuge always ready to welcome you! Poco prima di sbucare nella vallata di Varrone
