Your main goal is to arrive at Pont-Saint-Martin (Valle d’Aosta) from where you will take the SR44 up the Gressoney Valley.
From France or Switzerland, join the Torino-bound A5 via the respective San Bernado/Mt Blanc tunnels or passes. Please be aware that the higher, non toll options are seasonal (feel free to contact us for the latest info). Exit the A5 at Pont-Saint-Martin.
From Milan (145km), take the Torino-bound A4 for 72km until Santhià. Here, stay right and take the E25 that connects with the A5 near Ivrea. Turn right and follow the A5 towards Aosta. Exit at Pont-Saint-Martin.
From Turin/Torino (75km), take the Aosta-bound A5 to Pont-Saint-Martin.
The previous instructions are given for those arriving by autostrada (Motorway). Remember that in Italy these are tolled roads. It is possible, cheaper and very picturesque to follow the "State/Regional roads" – "Strade Statali/Regionali (SS/SR)", but expect significantly longer journey times.
From the toll exit booths at Pont-Saint-Martin, turn right. At the first roundabout take the 2nd exit and at the second roundabout take the 3rd exit. After a few hundred meters turn right onto the SR44 bound for Gressoney. After 9km, opposite a picnic area and shortly before entering the village of Fontainemore, take the signed switchback right to the hamlet of Espaz (if you reach the bridge over the Lys then you have gone too far!). 300 metres after taking the Espaz turning, you will enter into a parking area. Give us a ring and we will come down and meet you.
