Day 47 – Ponte Saint Martin to Ivrea- 27kms


Leaving our delightful Hotel Ponte Romano this morning.


An interesting way to grow and trellis grape vines.


We’ve seen many elaborate and simple churches along the way – this is one of the simple variety.

Here also is a very simple roadside chapel – there are no elaborate icons here.


Climbing roses are out in their finest here in the late weeks of spring in Europe – how great to be able to grow these lovelies!


Intensive viticulture is seen everywhere here in northern Italy.


More delightful climbing roses in a nearby village.


Classic photo of a castle as we approach Ivrea.


Inside the old part of the town of Ivrea there is this large red brick 12th century castle. Looks like the Italians still love their red bricks – not just here in Italy, but also in Sydney and Melbourne, just a few of their post-WW2 immigration destinations.
