Ivrea and Canavese

Rich in natural, historic and artistic treasures, the Canavese district and its extraordinary variety of landscapes is a show-piece of the Turin province. The Ice Age has left its footprint on this area: a morainic amphitheater surrounds the first city of the Canavese district, Ivrea, and five glacial lakes are spread through. Green valleys and gentle hills extend throughout the area of Canavese. Dividing Piedmont from Valle d’Aosta, the Valchiusella is a valley of particularly striking beauty. The entire valley is an extraordinary testimony to the presence of the legendary Salassi and, later, of the Roman populations.
