WHAT TO EXPECT/ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION

Wow! Isn't visiting Italy's most beautiful hydroelectric power plant an awe-inspiring experience? Accompanied by a guide, you’ll enjoy the tale of a century of history, fall in love with the building’s architecture and admire the graffiti inside, as well as understand how the water — the most precious element we have — is used. At the end of the tour, you’ll go up the Noce Bianco River, relaxing in the shade of some traditional Alpine farmhouses.
