    Breathtaking scenery Pro, and great photos - really like the third and sixth ones! Used to think I'd like to go rockclimbing as a child - then vertigo struck! Good for you - looks amazing!

    I had a fantastic time and met some intresting folk, will be coming back next time with a hire car as public transport is poor. Its an intresting place to stay as folk speak both italian or german plus the local dialec! Food was excelent.
