Val Cenis (1300-2800 m) is a ski resort in Savoie which stretches between the Vanoise national park and the Mont-Cenis mountain pass, the villages of Lanslebourg-Mont-Cenis and Lansvillard, in Haute-Maurienne, near the Italian border.
As early as the 12th century, the Mont-Cenis mountain pass became the main passage to the Piedmont region. In 1805, Napoleon had a road built (today, this is D1006, ex-National 6), linking Susa in Italy to Val Cenis Lanslebourg.
