Parco della Burcina

Reviewed By cmeyers812 - Milan, Italy

One would not expect to visit a park in a small town in Italy and see trees and flowering plants from all over the world. However, Parco Burcina is this unexpected place. Located near the center of Pollone the park has parking located at the entrance. The park has an extensive collection of trees and flowering plants from all over the world which can be viewed throughout the park while walking on the paved road or hiking trails. The summit has stunning views of the surrounding area which on a clear day you can see long distances in all directions. Highly recommend spending time enjoying the park! Was guided through here by friends who live in Pollone and shared the history of the park with us.

Santuario di Oropa

Reviewed By SophiaK - Athens, Greece

An amazing location and impressive sanctuary. Although during our visit the weather changed rapidly and started raining heavily and fog was obstructing the view, it is an inspiring setting. We were very fortunate to attend a mass service in the Ancient Basilica which was very spiritual. Unfortunately due to a foot injury I could not climb the stairs all the way to the Basilica so I missed the Black Madonna!

Ricetto di Candelo

Old buildings with historical reenactments

Reviewed By Tualie - Varese, Italy

"Ricetto" is a small fortified area located in towns and villages used to shelter products, livestock, farming equipment as local depot and people in case of attacks from enemies. This one is particularly interesting since is the only one to maintain medieval structure as per original designs with barns, walls and fortified towers. The majority of these ricettos spread in Piedmont and Lombardy are mostly in ruins or disappeared. There is another ricetto of interest to visit located in Magnano, 20 kms. southwest.
Free entrance, there are a couple of restaurants and many ateliers, this place was chosen many times as film location, beautiful to visit during festivals. It was quiet the day we visited it, walking in those streets was a travel back in time...

Biella, Quartiere Del Piazzo

Reviewed By beentheretooo - Newport Beach, California

Crowning a hill overlooking the city, it is accessible by a funicular lift or by driving around behind the hill and hiking up. The square is pretty classical 1500-1600's Italy with nice views, old buildings and a bunch of small cafes to eat and relax in - worth the trip up

Lago del Mucrone

Reviewed By luciana16 - siderno

Molto frequentemente il Monte Mucrone è circondato dalla nebbia, ma se si è fortunati, appena scesi dalla funivia e percorsi pochi metri si arriva in questo spettacolare laghetto di montagna con i suoi colori e scorci unici. Si può raggiungere anche a piedi con una bella scarpinata dal sentiero che parte lato funivia.

Bella strada panoramica, peccato che oggi la giornata non era proprio limpida, quindi non ce la siamo goduta appieno. Vi consiglio di farla, ci sono diversi punti panoramici dove approfittare per fare foto e ammirare il Panorama.

Comunita Monastica di Bose

Reviewed By Ericad75 - Castelleone, Italy

Ho soggiornato in questa comunità monastica per un paio di giorni.
L'intera struttura è ben restaurata, conservata con molta cura ed immersa in un paesaggio splendidido che trasmette serenità e tranquillità.
Le stanze sono essenziali ma molto accoglienti, dotate di armadio, letto, scrivania e bagno privato.
I pasti in cui vengono consumati i prodotti del loro orto sono buoni e abbondanti, ho apprezzato il poco utilizzo di sale.
Dopo un'accoglienza molto cordiale è un vero piacere poter interagire con i monaci e le monache, molto emozionante partecipare ai momenti di preghiera.
Consigliato per dei momenti di pace interiore.
