Parco Nazionale dello Stelvio

Parco Nazionale dello Stelvio Review

The Alps' biggest national park is spread over 1,350 square km (520 square mi) and four provinces. Opened in 1935 to preserve flora and protect fauna, today it has more than 1,200 types of plants, 600 different mushrooms, and more than 160 species of animals, including the chamois, ibex, and roe deer. There are many entrances to the park, and a dozen visitor centers. Bormio makes a good base for exploring—the closest entrance to town is the year-round gateway at Torre Alberti.
