VIA FRANCIGENA-Canterbury to Rome Day 48

Day 48 Ivrea to Viverone:
{CAPTION}

Walking through Ivrea we came to a small Pilgrims Info Office where a sweet lady stamped our books.
{CAPTION}

Some of these Italian communities are really supportive of pilgrims.
{CAPTION}

Walking on a bicycler riding by stood up, waved and shouted, “Buon Cammino”. Continued good vibes in Italy.
{CAPTION}

We passed many hillside vineyards.

Enjoyed the old Romanesque Church of San Pietro.

And really liked the ruins of the small Romanesque chapel Gesuin.

Made it to Camping La Rocca at 1:30 or so.

The owner Alberto is very nice and speaks good English.
{CAPTION}

He pulled up on his tractor when I came up to gate. Gave us a drink and then showed us our cozy camper van accommodation.
{CAPTION}

He has a farm in back and makes his own wine.
{CAPTION}

The lake made for a nice hot afternoon swim. Not too cold at all.
We enjoyed sitting out front in the afternoon enjoying the view of the lake and the Alps.
{CAPTION}

At dinner Alberto brought out his own white wine and some pancetta and other cured meat with bread.
Second was a delicious mushroom fettuccine.
{CAPTION}

Followed by lake fish with fries and a fresh salad.

And a litre of his red wine.

Another great, memorable stay. And inexpensive.
