Mountain class

Educational projects for schools

The area around Sondrio offers a wide range of opportunities which allow to discover the history of this valley, the culture of its  hospitable people and to amuse oneself in its untamed but generous nature.
We are addressing teachers, educators and principals, so that they ensure that this heritage is known and enjoyed by students.
The beauties of these area are different from - but every bit as good as - the ones to be found in the traditional destinations of educational visits.
Mountain Class" is a project designed by Consorzio Turistico Sondrio e Valmalenco, whose aim is to promote the area and to ensure that kids can fully enjoy and experience it in the best way possible. 
We would like to thank in advance all those who will consider and participate in the proposals included in our project.
