More Riva


View Europe 2015 on Adamtrumble's travel map.

Last day in beautiful Riva.

We all walked up the hill to Chiesa di Santa Barbara, a chapel perched 545 metres vertically up. The path there is 2.6 Ks. There was a spirit of competition, as Igor's fastest time up was 56 minutes.

Justin did it in 36 minutes 45 seconds, I managed 40 minutes and Igor and Jennny did 47 minutes.

The views from there are spectatular.


After lunch, Jenny, Justin and I went on another walk, 12k return, up a much more gradual incline, but with great views.

There were lots of mountain bikers on the path, that used to be a road. There were also plenty of sheer drops that tested our hight-related insecurities.


Igor and Jenny took Justin and me up the hill, firstly to a village called Canale. Igor said the village was around 800 years old.


We then went to a traditional restaurant in Calvola and ate far too much.
