. Including! Lunch at a traditional Crotto Restaurant
A guided tour in the heart of Val Bregaglia discovering beautiful landscapes, ancient history and local traditional food; a truly unique experience!
We will be starting from InfoPiuro in Borgonuovo, an interactive exhibition centre where you will get in touch with the ancient history of this suggestive territory, highly damaged by a terrible landslide in 1618. This is the reason why this town is known as The North Italian Pompei where they still find archeological signs.
You will then travel on a minivan and your first stop will be Belfòrt, a real acheological site dating back the XVI Century. What was a beautiful palace is now an impressive ruin, partly saved by its location.
Next stop is Santa Croce where we will visit an ancient machine (Torchio) for pressing and get a good wine; a well preserved historical find representing the rich tradition of this Valley.
Time for lunch! In Val Bregaglia there’s only one option and its name is Crotto! A natural cave once used for storing and aging cheese, meat and wine. Well, have a seat and enjoy a fabulous lunch with local traditional specialties! “No Crotto… No Val Bregaglia!”… just to say that this is a Must-do here!
After lunch we will get back to history and visit a Renaissance masterpiece: Palazzo Vertemate Franchi, the only building not damaged by the landslide in 1618. Frescos, antique decorated Stüe (rooms entirely covered in wood), meticulously carved ceilings… Your guide will get through all these splendours with you.
But this is not the end yet! We still have nature to enjoy! It’s now time for Mother Nature artworks: Acqua Fraggia Waterfalls! Relax and have a walk in the park before we head back to the starting point.
History, Archeology, Nature, Traditions, Local Tastes, Art… Everything you need from this full day with us! 😉
