TRAVELLING THROUGH THE ALPS
At the end of the eighteen hundreds, the railway ended the isolation of the Alps with the drilling of the first tunnels, drawing two mountain faces closer than ever before.
The Alps have attracted travellers from all over Europe since the middle of the nineteenth century.
Ski lifts emerged in the mountains at the beginning of the twentieth century. They were built thanks to public and private investments.
