This is the time of the year when many Italian families head to the beautiful mountains of Italy for the much beloved "settimana bianca" (white week), therefore our Word of the Week is montagna - mountain.

To climb a mountain is scalare una montagna.

The mountain peak is la cima della montagna

A hiking trail is sentiero di montagna
