preto de San Nicolas, Valle d’Aosta (Italia)
Thanks to our school's participation in the Comenius "Let Stones Speak" project and our collaboration with the Safe Mountain Foundation of Courmayeur, pupils from the 2nd and 3rd forms spent a day discovering the geological wonders of an area not so far from the school. This geosite is an immense deposit of glacial origin which, along with other factors,contributed to a fascinating geomorphological phenomenon: that of the badlands and the earth pyramids of Saint Nicolas.
HOW TO GET THERE:
By bus from Aosta (15 km) or from Courmayeur (20 km) to Saint Pierre, where you have to catch another bus for Saint Nicolas that takes you along 8 km. of panoramic road. Price: Aosta - St. Nicolas
WHERE TO STAY: There are no youth hostels in the area and most accommodation is quite expensive. Therefore, we recommend campsites, which are located in very attractive areas, have many amenities and are cheap. The low summer season is May, June and September. High summer season is July and August:
