Italian Snow ~ unbelievable but true

When people think about Italy, they imagine sun, sunny beaches and sun. Well, it is quite true but there’s a magic about my Country: you can also have tons of snow from November to April. This is in the Alps, and not only. Hundred of kilometers of magnificent natural landscapes from Winter to Summer.

I took the following pictures in Baselga di Pinè, Trento. A breathtaking lake with great surroundings.

 

If by chance you are going to visit Italy, remember there is not only Venice, Florence or Rome.

the most ancient clock in the world

Two days ago I went to a small city near my home town, called Chioggia. I have known it is called the “small Venice” because it has got canals, and bridges, and Venetian palaces etc. But I have never known in Chioggia there is the most ancient tower clock in the world. I literally stepped on it, and was profoundly surprised by this “discover”. What a pity that the museum was closed, so we are planning to go back there with the kids in the summer. Maybe for a short boat trip to Venice from Chioggia and back.
