Every year mountaineers from all over the world come to Mont Blanc. On this 2-day tour I will guide you through the Normal Italian Route to the summit of this amazing peak!

Mont Blanc, or “White Mountain”, is the highest mountain in the Alps. Rising 4808m, it stands in the Graian Alps subrange, between the Aosta Valley in Italy, and Savoie and Haute-Savoie in France.

On this program, we will climb the Normal Italian Route. It is also called the “Pope Route” because it was first climbed by a team including the future Pope Pius XI, in 1890. It is longer, more varied and a bit more demanding than the French Route, but has the advantage that it is less crowded.

The Normal Italian Route  crosses the Val Veny to the Francesco Gonella hut (3,072m.), above the Miage Glacier.  This charming refuge will be where we sleep. Then, the following day we will start the climb to a minor summit called Piton des Italiens (4,003 m) and the summit of Dome De Gouter, before reaching the top of Mont Blanc.

This program is not suitable for beginners but perfect for those looking for a challenge in a stunning alpine scenery.

Most of the Italian side of Mont Blanc is composed of impressive granite ridges and steep glacial terrain. Some short sections require ice axe and crampons. Consequently, you must have have a good physical preparation and previous acclimatization to attempt this summit.

So, if you are up for an unforgettable mountaineering adventure on the Italian Route to the summit of Mont Blanc, please get in touch with me! I’m sure that you will never forget these breathtaking views from the top of the Alps!
