Italy/Switzerland: Lago Maggiore - paulsmit
[ITALY.PIEMONTE 01593] 
'Goats with a view.'

While in high season tourists are trapped in the traffic on the road circling Lago Maggiore, a few hundred meters up you'll find perfect quietness. Take a hike and share the marvellous panoramas with the goats. The Alto Verbano offers the best slopes for such walks. Photo taken near Piancavallo by Paul Smit.
