Driving from Torino Casselle airport
From Torino Caselle airport (or from the direction of Milano) follow the direction of the Tangenziale (green sign) and Savona/Piacenza signage, skirting around the perimeter of Torino, past the Interporto truck stop.
Continue on the motorway, taking the exit to the right for Pinerolo/Sestriere (SS23).
Skirt around Pinerolo continuing towards Sestriere direction(SS23). You will pass through 2 short tunnels and continue towards Sestriere, approximately 7.1km further, till you arrive at the roundabout with the standing gray stone columns. Exit over the river on the bridge, towards the town of Pinasca.
Continue a short distance to a T intersection. Directly in front of you will be the yellow/brown museum “Abitare in Valle”, turn left towards the church with the clock tower that will be directly ahead once you turn.
About 300 meters past the church, turn right at the sign for Serre Marchetto, Podio, and Borgate di Pinasca, continue up about 6 km, following signs for Bella Baita and Hosteria 7 Ponti.
The name of the street is Martiri del Castelnuovo and is not always on google maps. (The GPS sometimes will send you to the old road, Ugo Paolasso, which does connect to this new section of our road and will get you here as well)
Drive steadily up quite a few switchbacks about 5.6km following the signs for Bella Baita. Do make the sharp left turn towards Borgata Rossetto. (Tom Tom GPS and others sometimes try to send you in the wrong direction - straight) Continue past Grangiassa and Servel. Keep going till you see the Serremarchetto sign. We are on the right.
Enjoy the scenic ride up, and do not give up too soon!
