The Credential is strictly personal (even in the case of groups one copy per person must be distributed) and entitles you to receive a 10% discount in all the affiliated establishments.

When you have completed your walk, in front of the Sanctuary of Sant'Anna, you can go to the Sant'Anna Refuge and with your credential, collect the "Testimonium" to certify the completion of your walk.



La Via di Sant'Anna has 2 departures, both in the city of Cuneo, to allow you to arrive in the way you prefer.

TRAIN: The main departure point is in front of the railway station, connected with the Turin-Cuneo, Savona - Cuneo (changing at Fossano) and Limone P.te - Cuneo (for those arriving from France) routes.

BUS: Both departures can be reached by bus and the departure of Piazza Torino is the terminus of all routes.

CAR: Cuneo can be reached by car via the motorway, arriving from Turin (98 km) or Savona (100 km) and Genoa (150 km). There are several free parking areas around Cuneo (Piazzale Walther Cavallera or Ex eliporto car park - 50 m from ATL del Cuneese)
