Avigliana

Avigliana lies in the Susa valley and it is located about 25 kilometers west of Torino. Only 30 minutes by train and you are in quiet, little city. No tourists, no clutter, no rush. City center streets are narrow and cosy. We even had to huddle to the house walls to give way for Fiat cars. But before a long walk we had an Italian brunch.IMG_6805IMG_6788IMG_6792IMG_6797IMG_6801

We vent to the ruins of castle, destroyed in the 17th century by the French. And that place was unsustainable. Hot sun, refreshing spring wind, and the gentle smell of wild peppermint which grows on that hill.

I could sit there and watch mountains endlessly, but we still had to see the Natural Park of the Lakes of Avigliana. We spent there a lot of time just lying on rocks near to the transparent, clear water enjoying spring vibes and views on hills.
