'Through the Italian Alps' by Gillian Price.
Earmark a week or so next July for your trip to Italy.
When the book arrives, have a look and see which section appeals to you most. The book divides a version of the GTA route into 47 stages that can be further divided or adapted in many ways.
Contact us for advice if necessary. We will be delighted to help, albeit our own route has covered only about a quarter of the GTA.
Stanfords will sell you the relevant map(s), though if you live within reach of Manchester you are welcome to view ours.
Once you've established a plan, preferably with a few friends, book flights to Nice or Turin.
You may want to book some Posto Tappas or Rifugios as well, but that can wait until next June when they open.
Don't forget to pack a pair of binoculars and an Alpine flower book!
It's a wonderful part of the world. Have a great time, and say hello if you bump into us - possibly in the Maritime Alps.
