Der Mensch braucht bei den besten Flügeln seiner Phantasie
auch ein Paar Stiefel für das Pflaster.Ach, dem Menschen fehlen oft weniger die Flügel als die Anhöhe,
auf der er den Flug anfängt.Heiterkeit oder Freudigkeit ist der Himmel
unter dem alles gedeiht.Die Freude und das Lächeln
sind der Sommer des Lebens.Jean PaulDreiFarben@gmx.de
Did I say the Apollo butterfly was rare? In Germany it has been on the red list of endangered species since 1936, but in the Maira Valley it is king of the skies. I saw dozens alone today!The hike turned out to be difficult. In the first part, I was threatened by huge, nasty hums, stopping was out of the question. And the upward trend was painful. If it weren't for the phenomenal view from Punta Culour. A fantastic view of the mountainous end of the valley! France is already over there!The steep path down to Acceglio had fallen into disrepair; briefly panic rose in me. The alternative route was also uncomfortable. A hike with all the ups and downs.Acceglio is wonderful. How one imagines an Italian vacation home from the fifties. The Strada provinciale and the roaring Maira River run through the middle of the village (160 inhabitants). A crowd of children hog the only ice cream counter. There is a cafe, an ATM, two Alimentari and helpful information that is also open on weekends. Only the tourists prefer to live on the heights today.

The beginning of today's stage was completely under the spell of wild strawberries. Lots of it! So I only made progress at a snail's pace. But after just under 2 hours, Elva was also reached. The frescoes in the parish church there are known throughout the Maira Valley. A highlight!What followed was a sea of flowers. Colorful summer meadows like I've never seen them before. Alpine Pasque Flower and Fire Lily. Bloodroot and Mustard. The pyramid dogwort! Spotted orchid. My favorite plant, the mountain houseleek!And then the longed-for moment came: an Apollo butterfly simply sat down in front of me. You can recognize this extremely rare butterfly by its size! I was overwhelmed.

An alpine buck! Centaury and ox-eye, six-spot, white-spot and saspard rams! Stonecrop and meadowsweet! Wirbeldost and Kleine Braunelle. Mountain sand bells. Rust-colored thick-headed butterfly. Willowherb and Yellow Sunflower! Large star umbel and cranesbill.These plants and insects (and much more) testify to the intact nature of the secluded Maira Valley. Plus wild strawberries in abundance. Blooming clumps of lavender where it is dry and sunny. So almost everywhere!

Continue with the Linea 92 bus to Dronero, the gateway to the Maira Valley. The valley stretches about 60 km to the French border and is part of the Cottian Alps. With only 2 inhabitants per square kilometer, the valley is one of the most sparsely populated landscapes in Europe.

GROM started its triumphal march (only) in 2003. Two friends opened their first ice cream parlor in Turin. There are now not only branches in 23 Italian cities, but also in Jakarta, London, Nice, Prague, Lisbon, Marseilles, Paris and Shanghei. Probably the best ice cream in the world. It has totally convinced me twice today 🙂

Turin has an "appearance of uniformity that is almost unique in Europe"; the city as such is a total work of art. The palaces and residences of the Royal House of Savoy are World Heritage Sites. For me, the fourth largest city in Italy exudes stately serenity, majestic beauty and a rich heritage. 32 degrees in the shade.
