Walking in Italy (part 3)

This week, I  decided to post my story earlier than Sunday. As Sunday is Christmas  and you might all be very busy celebrating. Happy Holidays to you.

Our self-guided walk continue in ITALY.

Day 5. Walked from Benevello to Neive. 19.5 km. The trail passes through forests and orchards. We had to put our raincoat for a bit . Only a few drops of rain  but the sky was rather cloudy and the path was muddy.

We were in the rolling hills of the wine country with vineyards dedicated to Barbaresco, a light version of Barolo.

During our morning walk, we saw a man and his dog. It was a  truffle hunter. The season had just started.

We were rather happy to find a good restaurant  in Treiso to have lunch. It seems that eating has been the center of our time during those walking days !  The village of Treiso is presented here in  a watercolor  image ( a special setting I can do with my camera).

What should we eat ? I think the ravioli would be a good choice with insalatona  mista.

Every time, we passed some fig trees, our friend David wanted to pick some and a few time we taste them. Delicious !  The leaves were changing color. We tasted the grapes also from time to time. There were so sweet.

After 19.5 km, we arrived in  Neive, a quaint little village. We had time to wander before dinner.  An old church, a bell  tower, some interesting architecture, people having a drink outside. It was September 21  but we had been quite lucky with good weather. And we only had one more day to walk in this area.

A little more about this walk in my next post. I think I will  post it  next Friday.

Thanks so much for reading.
