5 of the most beautiful treks in Northern Italy

5 of the most beautiful treks in Northern Italy

GUEST POST FOR ” CAMPING FOR WOMEN” read the original post here!

If you are a trekking lover, the north of Italy with its thousands of trails is the ideal place to go.

Whether you decide to go trekking in the Alps, Dolomites or Friulian Dolomites, the scenery will always be spectacular and full of pleasant encounters such as deer, eagles, marmots, cows and goats… and yes! Sometimes you can find bears but is very rare to meet them.

In Italy the flags to follow in the paths are white and red, and usually very well marked so don’t worry and always follow the rule n.1 “never leave the path”.

Here my top 5 of the most beautiful Treks in the north of Italy divided into regions:

Trekking in FRIULI VENEZIA GIULIA

• L’anello delle Dolomiti Friulane – The ring of the Friulian Dolomites

In the middle of the less known dolomites an incredible 4-day trekking that reaches the Pacherini, Pordenone, Padova and Giaf shelters where to sleep and refresh yourself. You will cross the wonderful and wild valleys of the unknown groups of Pramaggiore, Monfalconi, Spalti di Toro and Cridola.

Prepare yourself on high altitude walks, to the overcoming of many forks at several meters in altitude more than once a day, to equipped paths and the trek along the beautiful gentian trail and under the symbol of this region: the “Campanile di Val montanaia”. Breathless.

• Il sentiero degli Scalini – The path of the stairs

The Passo dei Scalini Trail is located in the Western Julian Alps and is part of the Jof Fuart group. Starts from Sella Nevea at 1180 m. and arrives at the passo of the Scalini at 2022 meters in 3 hours between woods, alpine huts where the cheese is produced, waterfalls and high altitude views. Carrying on you can arrive at the Corsi Hut at 1874 meters. This shelter is an amazing red building totally surrounded by a semicircle mountain range and hundred of rock goats.

The walk is not so difficult but long so if you are not trained for this when you arrive at the top turn yourself and come back.

WEEKEND IN MILAN: 16 UNCOMMON PLACES ABSOLUTELY TO VISIT

WEEKEND IN MILAN: 16 UNCOMMON PLACES ABSOLUTELY TO VISIT

My TIPS about what to do and see in Milan, especially about food and beverage.

I spent 5 years in this city and even though I decided to return to my beloved northeast, I left in Milan a bit of heart and life.

If you go beyond the appearances and the usual places, Milan offers very special charms and being a great city does not need to tell you how much it is full of attractions, locals and solutions for all pockets.

So I leave you my list of things not to be missed in Milan – obviously with no order!

1. A MOLECULAR DRINK AT THE “NOTTINGHAM FOREST”

You can’t leave Milan without drink something in this amazing bar.

Dario Comini is one of the most famous molecolar mixologist and barman of the world e create liquid emotions.

Already the choosing of the drink is an experience! The menu is gigantic with dozens of cocktails and as you can see I’m drinking a bathtub, with foam and eaten ducks LOL.

It ranges from the most common, such as martini cocktails in many variants, to molecular drinks, aphrodisiacs or  jelly cups;

There are drinks who play with hot / cold, taste and smell, or sweet and spicy, all in one drink! . Do not frighten yourself from the queue that is very often outside the room, trust me, have patience and you will be rewarded!

2. IT’S HIRO! – A JAPAN GIRL IN MILAN

There are a lot of Japanese restaurants in Milan but Hiro (who is also the owner’s name) is the best. Small RESTAURANT  in the Porta Romana area has the timeless classic of Japanese cuisine but the TOP is off the menu! Every time it is an experience of new flavors so far away from our kitchen but with simple ingredient as we are accustomed to.

Spaced from meat to fish, everything is worth tasting, even the cakes!

Ah! Hiro’s other charm is the location: it’s in front of a famous vodka bar

3. PRAVDA – THE BISON VODKA

Super-supplied vodkeria, very easy environment and exceptional drinks! The fresh raspberry vodka-sour is my favorite but also after-dinner SHOTS are great. For a top aperitif or a cool night. Only for originals drink lovers. (more…)
