Well worth the visit but try to go during the week as it can be very crowded. Take warm clothes as you're up at nearly 4000ft just below the snow line. Wear good stout shoes as there is cobbled areas to walk on. Although there...More

Always nice to escape a little bit from Milano's crowded attractions and swarms of tourists. This place is a fresh breath of history and stunning views.

The main place is the Sanctuary. It was build among three levels. The upper has the large basilica, the others have an armonic architecture, quiet, mystical. I suggest a visit to the ex-voto gallery

We went ti Santuario di Oropa last 15th August .We were very disappointed. Basically its a collection of restaurants and bars,with nothing else to see. The church was closed for repairs. Definitely not worth the hassle.

It's really a beautiful place. As you walk up the mountain the buildings are set on different levels. Each level has done thing wonderful to see. It gets very cold due to the altitude so bring a jacket with you at any time of the...More

Going to Oropa is always a pleasure, for the relax and the landscapes. You can visit the church and the chapel, the library and the long aisles with all the "ex voto" representing a piece of history of the lands and the traditions of the...More

The best way is of course by car, but there might be a shuttle from biella. You should look for line 360 from the train station. There you'll find the ticket office. For further info you can check the public transport... More
