Photodiary: Vallée d’Aoste

La neve sulle cime lontane, l’aria pungente e incredibilmente pura, la lunga valle attraversata da un fiume cristallino e tanti piccoli castelli arroccati in ogni angolo… il paese delle fiabe!
Siamo riusciti a visitare la Valle d’Aosta prima delle grandi nevicate di quest’inverno, abbiamo visto il castello di Fénis dall’interno (è magico!) e mangiato un’ottima polenta taragna in una trattoria ai suoi piedi (La Chatelaine) per poi concludere la nostra giornata tra le vie di Aosta e del suo splendido mercatino di Natale (le Marché Vert Noël, fino all’8 gennaio). 
Sono rimasta davvero affascinata da quei luoghi.
The snow on the distant mountains, the pure and biting air, the large valley crossed by a crystal river and many small castles in every corner…the land of make believe!
We managed to visit the Vallée d’Aoste before the great snow, we saw the Castle of Fénis from the inside (it’s magic!) and ate a great mush in a near restaurant (La Chatelaine), then we went to Aoste and visited its Christmas market (le Marché Vert Noël, until January 8th).
Those places really fascinated me.
