The Val di Rabbi in spring
A walk through the meadows in bloom, filled with the sweet scents of the brightly coloured spring flowers, inhaling the bracing air which comes down from the summits still covered in snow, the thrill of cross a 60 metre high suspension bridge with a breathtaking view of the Ragaiolo waterfalls, or fishing right next to the farmhouse in the crystal-clear waters of the Rabbies river. These are just some of the reasons to visit the Italian Alps as the green shoots of spring appear!
