Subjects : The Pain De Sucre (Sugar Loaf in Italian, not to be confused with the many other mountains of the same name) is a mountain in the French Alps place just after the Italian border. The summit, at 3200 meters, is particularly picturesque and offers a magnificent 360-degree panorama.

Recommended equipment : Wide angle, standard zoom lens and tripod, plus any wide-angle light for night photos.

Best months : Summer months, assuming that there is no snow or icing additives.

How to get there : You park your car at the Col Agnel, 2700 meters, located on the border between Italy and France. From here there are many paths that reach the top; are not marked and there are an infinite number of variations, more or less difficult. The path 'classic' follows the contour of the mountain and is classified as EE (hikers); Some variants are also more demanding. It is not particularly difficult but it is steep and requires a bit of experience in the mountains.

Visits : Freely visited; also parking at the Col Agnel is free.

Notes : Remember that the peak is at an altitude of 3200 meters, the lower air pressure begins to be felt! Moreover, even in the summer months the temperatures can be around the zero day and different degrees below zero at night.
