The Alps are the most extensive mountain range in Europe. From Monaco to Trieste in Italia, the range crosses 8 countries and gives the whole area a strong cultural identity. Although it is a natural barrier inside Europe, the area is a booming place with a lot of cross-border exchanges promoted by the European Union and also regional organisations such as the Alpine Convention.
