More of our favourites this month…

Val de Funes, Dolomites
“I found this hidden treasure I had seen on calendars at St Magdalena, Val di Funes, in the Dolomite mountains. It is magical, and viewing the Odle mountain peaks is breath-taking. My wife and I also had the pleasure of walking one of the spectacular trails under the Odles.”
by David Ellisor, Durango, Colorado, USA


Civita di Bagnoregio Italy

“We recently visited the picturesque village of Civita di Bagnoregio, known as la città che muore (the town that is dying) due to erosion of the rock beneath it. Situated on an isolated rocky outcrop, the only access is on foot across a bridge from the town of Bagnoregio.”
by Peter Colligan, Waterlooville


MIlan in the rain Italy

“During a recent visit to Milan people were queuing for two hours in the pouring rain to view the inside of the magnificent Duomo.”
by Alan Tagg, Burgess Hill


Ponte Vecchio

“Ponte Vecchio, where lovers dawdle and leave padlocks to celebrate their love. We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary in Florence – but didn’t leave a padlock!”
by Jane Lomas, Bicknacre
