Strada Statale 20, 21 - VERNANTE (CN)
Vernante is the village of Pinocchio, which is depicted on the houses in memory of Attilio Mussino, the great illustrator of the puppet's early stories, who chose to spend his old age here.

It should not be forgotten that the "vernantin" knives were born here, indestructible knives with a steel blade and a handle made of ox horn or boxwood.

From Vernante, in winter, you can go skiing in the Limone Piemonte White Reserve or on the Palanfrè mountains (off-piste) in just ten minutes, and in just over an hour, you can reach Liguria, Monte Carlo, and the French Riviera.

In summer, you can take beautiful walks in nature along marked trails of various difficulties.

The Vernante territory is part of the Maritime Alps Natural Park and is located a short distance from the Mercantour National Park (France).

Those who do not like or cannot walk can rest on the benches in the "gardens" by the river.

In summer, there are paid tennis courts, soccer fields, bowling alleys, and inflatable games for children.

Furthermore, you can visit the Vermenagna and Roya Valleys in an intelligent and ecological way by using the train that connects Turin to Nice, passing through spectacular suspension bridges and daring spiral tunnels.
