  • Bataille des Reines in Vertosan Italy

    In the summer (this year it was in August) there is a battle of the queens (not drag queens - these are alpine fighting cows - no bull!) held at Vertosan. The cows are not 'goaded' into fighting - this is simply a more organized version of what the cows do naturally in the field. They will butt heads to find out who is the bossiest bossy.This spot...

    Walking in the Gran Paradiso is the best part of a holiday here. Once you set off on a walk you may see no more than one or two people all day and the scenery is nothing short of stunning. As Fodor's guide says "Five heavenly, lake filled valleys render this national park worthy of it's title."
