If you are in Turin and you want to pass a nice day out of the city, an hour far from the city you can walk on the longest Tibetan Bridge in the world. There are 3 bridges in total and one of them is suspended over the San Gervasio Gorge (Val di Susa) for almost 470 meters (1,540 feet). In some points, the gorges arrive at almost 100 meters (330 feet) deep.
Furthermore, the walkway has four ropes, 1440 steps and it is suspended at average, at 30 meters (100 feet) above the ground. The bridges go between the towns of Claviere and Cesana Torinese. From Cesana Torinese, you can see the Piccola Dora valley narrows that form a spectacular walk between the slopes of Sagnalong and Chamberton. You do not have to worry too much since you will be using a safety harness.
The bridges are open every weekend from in May and September ad every day from the first Saturday of July to the first Sunday of September. The minimum required height is 1m 20cm (3 feet 1 inch).

After that you can pass the rest of the day in the grass all around the small town of Clavier relaxing and take a deep breath of fresh air. From there if you want, you can start with several walks of different length and difficulty. It is a perfect day out of the smog and sultriness of the big city!
