Lake Maggiore - Italy

         

This year we went to Lake Maggiore ... that charming place! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania Pallanza 

Verbania is a quiet town with a magnificent promenade along the lake ...

   Lago Maggiore - Verbania Pallanza - Gabbiani  

behind a corner we find an iron railing, where a row of curious gulls await the arrival of someone or something ...

Lago Maggiore - Verbania Pallanza - Gabbiani 

are very funny and then I approach ... sin ... do not like my visit and go away annoyed .. roar something and believe it is of epithets! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania Pallanza - Oche 

No matter. Just before we console random encounter with the peaceful and sleepy geese ...

 Lago Maggiore - Villa Giulia Lago Maggiore - Villa Giulia  

We read that at Villa Giulia is an exhibition of succulent plants ... let's see! ...

There are some teachers who play with your children ... call us and we go smiling, smiling ... begin to play ... create planting fat with plasticine! ... Beautiful! ... We have fun both at the same time relaxing! ..

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania Pallanza Lago Maggiore - Verbania Pallanza 

After playing a little stroll ... we advance along a road in Verbania Intra ... is a beautiful road, pedestrian and cycle ... curious to say the truth ... meet the beautiful villas built of stone, one in particular attracts us ... seems to be the summer residence of Count Dracula! ... Dark, closed, with braziers on either side of the door to illuminate the dark nights ... would be a perfect place to do the Halloween party! ...

Soon after we see a dense forest at the side completely covered with climbing plants ... can not access! ... beside an old hotel, or a crumbling old villa ... understand why no one takes care of the park covered with climbing plants. Too bad, this seems a perfect place for Halloween ...

Let's go back ...

Lago Maggiore - Verbania Pallanza - Tramonto Lago Maggiore - Verbania Pallanza - Tramonto 

.. it was evening ... sunsets at Lake Maggiore are incredible! ... Pink, purple, turquoise ... wonderful colors! ...

Lago Maggiore - Verbania Pallanza - Tramonto 

The ducks ciangottano quiet evening while the last rays fade on the horizon ...

Too bad, this beautiful day is over! ...

   =^.^=

The next day we ventured to Switzerland in the upper part of Lake Maggiore, we took the funicular that climbs the mountain and we came up with Orselina.

 Lago Maggiore - Orselina - Trenino a cremagliera Lago Maggiore - Orselina - Trenino a cremagliera  

 Lago Maggiore - Orselina - Trenino a cremagliera 

The funicular is really fun ...

 Lago Maggiore - Orselina Lago Maggiore - Orselina 

We enter a place by following the advice of a children's playground ... encounter a strange amphitheater where they were placed hundreds of stalls along the steps, all inclined ... try to sit down but I'm a bit uncomfortable ... I wonder why they put them in that way ... seems difficult to eat! ...

  Lago Maggiore - Orsellina Lago Maggiore - Orsellina 

Strolling along the pathways ... Brother meets a small artificial lake that looks like a miniature of the real Lake Maggiore ... I observe the building looks like a castle, colorful, yellow, red and white ... I go up and read a label ...

Ach! ... It 's a school! ...

I want a good school like this! ...

That's what made the benches in tiers! ...

The Mensa! ...

I want a table overlooking the Lake Maggiore! ...

Ach! ...

I'm envious! ...

Being jealous is ugly ...

Ugly, Cat, bad! ...

Via the envy ... by envy! ...

 Ach! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Castello di Cannero 

We go back to Verbania ... along the road we see a castle on the lake ... there are cranes that are doing the repairs ...

Dungeon ...

 Lago Maggiore - Castello di Cannero  

This is the Castle Cannero ... just wonderful ...

I'd have known that the princess lived in a similar manor! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania - Eco del Risveglio 

Back in Verbania we stop to read a newspaper ... Echo of the Awakening ... take some ideas about what we can do in the area ... There is lots of action ....

   Lago Maggiore - Verbania  

Among other things we read in the newspaper is one that teases us ... write a strange monument on which mysteriously appeared a written ... "Oracle" .... considered which is right next to our hotel we have a look for yourself ...

Ugly, Cat, Curious! ...

Browse fun! ...

Unfortunately we do not understand anything ... there is only written "Oracle" but tells us nothing about the "Future"! ...

   Lago Maggiore - Verbania - Tramonto  

The evening is approaching ... The sunsets are our passion and we do not want to lose even a moment.

We sit, we wait ...

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania - Tramonto  

 Watch as the sun disappears behind the mountain! ...

Beautiful! ...

My father tells me that mountain, probably, but not sure, should perhaps be the Monte Rosa ...

Check this! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Stresa - Grand Hotel 

Later .. to night ... we got to see Stresa! ...

We walk along the boulevard and admire a number of beautiful, shimmering, hotels ...

They are beautiful! ... But overall I prefer mine in Verbania, peaceful and family! ...

Meow! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania 

The next morning we wake up early ... a gull (at least what it seems ... maybe a duck is dressed in snow !...) silently watching us! ... The snap a picture! ... As if to say: "I saw you ... I care for you !..."

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania 

Awakening to the lake is slow ... the air moves slightly and the floating of light on water is extremely relaxing.

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania Lago Maggiore - Verbania 

What a wonderful place ... I'm sure I would live here ...

Today we go to visit the
 
Borromean Islands ...

Want to read what we did? ...

But then again see the rest of our adventure at Lake Maggiore! ...

Click on any of these photos:

   Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo Lago Maggiore - Golfo Borromeo  

 Grteat day !... Borromean Islands !...

...

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania Lago Maggiore - Verbania  

In the evening we return to the hotel ... a very kind waiter noticed that we like to feed the ducks in the lake and so gives us a bag full of bread, perfect for our friends! ...

So we spent the evening in the company of a whole flock of paperottole who continued to do "here, here, here" around us ...

   

The next day we ventured to the discovery of the Val Grande National Park.

 Parco Nazionale della Val Grande 

This is Cicogna (Stork)! ...

Last bunch of stone-roofed houses in the Park of Val Grande.

But we tell things in order ...

We ventured by car headed to the park, we were told that you can make beautiful walks and we are curious, we went.

The road is not the best, a single lane and behind a cliff ... the view is breathtaking ...

We arrived and was full of tourists, all equipped for the trek.

Damn! ... We are not very equipped and only then we can make walking easier! ...

Sin ... I would like to venture ... maybe next time! ...

Parco Nazionale Val Grande - Chiesa di Cicogna 

At the center of a country church, feature, with a fantastic watch in the tower. The clock marks the hours with chime bells, the sound is spread throughout the valley and the mountains echoed, candid, refreshing, announced the gold to all who are in the woods.

 Parco Nazionale Val Grande Parco Nazionale Val Grande  

Took some photos ... and we enjoy the ride.

 Parco Nazionale Val Grande Parco Nazionale Val Grande 

  We pause to take some pictures ... overview ...

  Parco Nazionale Val Grande Parco Nazionale Val Grande 

Some paths are narrow and trekking equipment is really required! ...

We also find a sign, indeed, a series of warning signs, one above the other in which, summing up, said: "DANGER" is required even to get a helmet! ... It looks like a work site rather than a mountain path! ...

  Parco Nazionale Val Grande Parco Nazionale Val Grande 

My father adventure! ... Take two pictures and come back soon! ...

Confirms that it would take the helmet to continue! ...

 Parco Nazionale Val Grande - galleria nella roccia Parco Nazionale Val Grande - galleria nella roccia 

Returning by car, as I said, the road is narrow ... even at one point we meet a gallery! ... Excavated in the rock seems to get into a big cheese grater! ... There are millions of sharp rocks on the walls that we look menacing! ...

For wide-eyed we enter the tunnel and go through the lights on, slowly, her eyes wide open! ...

Damn ...

We had never seen a gallery like that! ...

Beautiful! ...

Even here there would be a good Halloween! ...

I bet the bats are at home! ...

Wow what an adventure! ...

   =^.^=

 

In the afternoon we were back together and we decided to tackle a course more ... civilized! ...

Villa Taranto

Lago Maggiore - Verbania - Villa Taranto Lago Maggiore - Verbania - Villa Taranto 

In Verbania Intra is a beautiful Villa, Villa Taranto, which hosts a huge botanical garden.

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania - Villa Taranto Lago Maggiore - Verbania - Villa Taranto 

We are lucky because there is a special exhibition Chrysanthemums ... the flowers are magnificent here and there are of every shape and color.

In fact our approach and hands ... looks good pictures: the flower next to my cat's paw is huge, while the flower next to the paw of my brother and his tiny ...

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania - Villa Taranto - Sala da Ballo per rane  

Later we meet a greenhouse and in the leaves of water lilies huge! ...

This is the famous "Victory Amazon" or the Queen of the Nymphs! ...

The leaves are beautiful! ... It looks like a ballroom for Frogs! ... Festively decorated and ready for that evening! ... We wish to return at night to see if the frogs are really dancing! ... I'm sure they had a party that night amazing! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania - Villa Taranto 

This small corner deserves a picture of us ... indeed it is the bell outside the grave of the former owner of Villa Taranto, do the due praise for its beautiful park and appreciate the opportunity to visit that left us a legacy.

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania - Villa Taranto - Ninfee Lago Maggiore - Verbania - Villa Taranto - Ninfee

Later we meet some great examples of lilies in the sun have color fading.

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania - Villa Taranto - Ninfee Lago Maggiore - Verbania - Villa Taranto - Ninfee

Are so many! ...

  Lago Maggiore - Verbania - Villa Taranto

 Continuing to walk along the paths, suddenly, at first, find a tree with an inscription:

 "Planted dall'Infante of Spain ..."

Beautiful! ...

This tree was planted here dall'Infante of Spain! ...

If there was Facebook, write immediately:

"I Like"

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania - Villa Taranto 

My Brother is placed between the huge roots of this tree ... is the usual mess! ...

=^.^=  Meow  =^.^=

  Lago Maggiore - Verbania - Villa Taranto

Meet a Tree Ginko Biloba! ...

My brother says he has read a beautiful story of dinosaurs who ate the leaves of Ginko biloba and stated they were great! ...

We observe a fallen leaf to see ... is indeed strange ... looks like a fan! ...

Maybe it's really good! ...

If we verify a dinosaur! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania - Villa Taranto 

Ok ... the visit is over .... sin! ...

We left the main gate of the Villa Taranto and find our beloved Lake Maggiore !....

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania 

Let us pause a moment in a church of Intra ... know that when you enter a church you've never seen you make a wish? ... Obviously it is forbidden to make a wish trivial or personal or ask stupid things! ...

Light a candle, recite a short prayer and express our desires! ...

Would you know what I want? ...

I'm not telling! ...

Otherwise there is a risk that never come true! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania 

Leaving the church we walk along the lake ... look at the ducks a small port ... sin, we have with us even a small piece of bread.

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania  

Soon comes the poignant sunset ... I'm not sure that this beautiful photos give a good idea what the summer sunsets on Lake Maggiore ... the photo depicts the landscape, but there's perfumes, odors and light appears slightly different as it is in reality ... But the words are not adequate to tell ... so I show you this little picture, what I have better to show you what I saw.

 Lago Maggiore - Verbania  

Another dreamer arrived by bicycle to see the sunset ... unaware that we were taking a picture he himself has become part of the landscape ...

 

Another day, another adventure ... Mottarone! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Mottarone 

On Stresa is a mountain called Mottarone you reach the cable car.

Entertaining the cable car! ...

The first thing that struck us were the numerous small wild strawberries ... good for small cats like us ...

Lago Maggiore - Mottarone  

The forest, for a moment under the sun ... is a white rose ... may have absorbed the colors of the sunset, maybe a joke of some witch of the place ... who knows! ...

Lago Maggiore - Mottarone Lago Maggiore - Mottarone 

My brother and my father trying to photograph insects ... there are many and all extraordinarily diverse and colorful.

 Lago Maggiore - Mottarone Lago Maggiore - Mottarone 

Above are two huge snowmobiles! ...

Belli snowmobiles! ...

We think that in winter snow is strong in Mottarone! ...

 Lago Maggiore - Mottarone

There are lifts that are lost in the distance ...

       

 Lago Maggiore - Mottarone Lago Maggiore - Mottarone  

  A small lift for the use we reach the top of Mottarone.

Next to the chairlift are building a kind of bob run, with lots of curves breathtaking ...

My brother said he wants to return next year ... for then they must surely have finished building the track and he would definitely try that ...

 Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee 

Returning to the valley took some photos from afar to the wonderful Borromean Islands ... pity that there is a slight haze ...

 Lago Maggiore - Tramonto Lago Maggiore - Tramonto  

Also this evening ... Beautiful sunset ... light gray and pearl ... beautiful! ...

I do not know if you see ... ing the arm in the first pic ... I'm trying to touch the mast of the boat ...

 Lago Maggiore - by Night 

Here is a picture at night with lights that reverberate on the lake ... came just fine.

   

Damn ... arrived on the last day of adventure ...

Today: Macugnaga and Mount Rose ...

Macugnaga - Monte Rosa 

The climate is not the best ... Macugnaga reached seems to be inside a cloud ...

The Monte Rosa is mysterious cloaked by clouds ... looks like a ghost ...

 Macugnaga  Macugnaga 

Let's go back after lunch! ...

The polenta was delicious! ...

We stop to admire a river rushing down the valley ... is so tumultuous that takes away even if the mist, takes away even if a cloud ...

  

Shortly after Macugnaga there is a small town called Guia ...

Here is an unusual museum, the Museum of Gold Mine.

Want to read what we did? ...

Click here.

  Miniera d'Oro Miniera d'Oro

Afterwards, he went back to finish reading this story ...

 Macugnaga - Paese di Minatori abbandonato 

Immediately after the Guia meet a bunch of abandoned houses .. I think it was an old mining village, now deserted and full of ghosts ... next we see the arrival of another gold mine ... the guide had said, there are about eighty abandoned gold mines in these areas.

 Lago Maggiore prima della tempesta Lago Maggiore prima della tempesta 

We return to Lake Maggiore ... damn storm is in the air! ...

Beautiful lake before the storm! ...

The force of nature .. wind, moisture-laden air, lights, smells ...

Too bad, it starts to rain and we enter the hotel ...

amused me sit and admire the lake that boils and shake.

 Lago Maggiore dopo la tempesta 

The storm calmed soon, the air is fresh and nice ... happy chirping birds and gulls have taken to fly quietly.

 Fondotoce 

Reaching Fondotoce (at the bottom of the river Toce, or at the end of the river) and we venture into a cane field, hoping to see some duck, but I think they are all hunting for tourists who dispense food! ... We want to do is to modern life and progress. Even the animals leave the countryside to go to town! ...
