... Great Italian National Park nr6ツ... the largest wilderness area in the country... the perfect place to hike and enjoy the steep deep valleys, crystal-clear waters in gorges and most spectacular views... also an outdoor museum of the ancient civilization of the Alps.... with shepherd huts and shelters for Italian partisans fighting the Nazis during the WWII... a place for real nature lovers... not yet overrun by tourists... Thanks a lot Gian Luca & Raffaella!! (✿ ♥‿♥) → World Postcards
