EPIC Drives: great st bernard and col du mont cenis
Martigny (Switzerland) - Great St Bernard - Turin (Italy) - Col du Mont Cenis - Albertville (France)
310 miles / 500 km
From Martigny in the upper Rhone valley of the French-speaking part of Switzerland, you gradually climb the mountain pass of the Great St Bernard (2469m), crossing the border into Italy before descending along tight bends down into the Aosta valley and onto the Piedmont metropolis of Turin. Then it is back up again through the Valle di Susa and up the Col du Mont Cenis (2083m) before entering France and descending along the western Alpine slopes past Albertville and Chamonix, before once more entering Switzerland.
