Aprica (1180 m a.s.l.) lies on the Alpine Pass
of the same name, which connects the Valtellina with the Valcamonica, in the
province of Brescia. This was an ancient communication route for pilgrims,
soldiers and merchants that came down from the Bernina and were directed to the
Po valley. Today Aprica is a both winter and summer vacation resort that spreads
on a green basin surrounded by the nature of the Park of the Orobie
Valtellinesi (the slope of the Bergamasque Alps belonging to Valtellina) with the
botanic treasures of the Pian di Gembro Natural Reserve and of the Observatory of
the Alpine Eco – Fauna that hosts a marvellous specimen of brown bear. Choose Aprica
for alpine skiing, Nordic skiing, ski mountaineering and snowshoes: lifts, ski
runs and trails, ski-schools and routes can satisfy any desire of yours. In
summertime you can dive into the most unspoilt nature choosing among trails and
routes to walk or to ride on. If you are not afraid of, then mount and climb
uphill the length of the Aprica, Mortirolo and Santa Cristina passes, which hosted
the Giro d'Italia many times. Visit the church of the Assunta, the church of San
Pietro and the modern murals on the walls of the different quarters painted by
a local artist.
