Istituto Geografico Centrale - Italian topographic maps
- Monte Bianco , Courmayeur , La Thuile
- Grand Paradiso
Italy was not well served with maps but in the last twenty years Italy has managed to redress most of this deficiency. Some areas of Italy were not mapped until the 1970s. Whenever you travelled southwards from Switzerland far enough that you went off the edge of the Swiss LDS maps, there was was always a "sinking feeling" of Terra Incognita.
The above topographic map from IGC showing Monte Bianco and the valley of Courmayeur.
The map data is 1989 and so it shows the tunnel at La Thuile in its original condition (wish I had taken a photograph then) and the proposed route of the now constructed Autostrada to Aosta. The large white area above the tunnel entrance is the Mont Blanc massif and on the far side of it in France is Chamonix.
