    If you want to stay at Terme de Valdieri, report at the lobby of the first class Hotel Royal. Impressive place, it may well be that the hotel scenes of 'Death in Venice' were shot here. Tell them you are a GTA traveler, and you will be put in the nearby Posto Tappa.
    Dinner is served in the hotels restaurant, and you will be served as luxurious as any other guest. If you packed your suit in your backpack, then this is the occasion to wear it! You will be served a somewhat simpler GTA-menu. HP €49 pppn.

    Horaire sous-estimé : 2 h pour descendre du refuge Questa (1000m de dénivelée), ce n'est pas possible : chemin empierré très fatiguant, très longs plats ; et pour remonter au refuge Morelli-Buzzi, il faut 3h20 et non 3h (1000m)

    Ein zusätzliche - gut für Wanderer geeignete - Übernachtungsmöglichkeit in Terme di Valdieri stellt das Albergo Turismo dar.
