In Fiorenzoula we stayed at the Mathis Hotel and were paid a visit by Emanuele from Bobbio an hour or so away. He and I met a few times in 2014 on the Everest Basecamp and 3 Passes Trek. Kept in touch and had a nice visit. Our third visit with old friends along the VF.
The Mathis Hotel’s restaurant has a Michelin rating and they offered a reasonably priced pilgrims dinner including two local dishes; Parmesan Risotto followed by Braseola with Parmesan. Both excellent.
