One of the things we love doing on our visit to the Nonni is spending some time in the mountains. We chose a short walk in Monte Baldo following a gentle road taking us to the top. The majority of tourists take the cable car from Malcesine along Lake Garda. It explained a lot the inappropriately dressed tourists in their summer dresses. It would not have been the best day for them either as it was foggy chilly and the rain arrived when we made it to the top.
Our walk would usually be about 40 minutes but it took just over an hour with my wee man. Admittedly I was impressed as the only complaint we got was that it was too easy and he kept veering off the path to climb rocks and discover paths through the grassy hillside. It was lovely seeing the flora of the mountain and we spotted huge snails, cows with noisy bells and goats and sheep. We treated ourselves to a warm lunch at the top as unfortunately I missed the view to the lake with all the mist.
I was so proud of my little adventurer who promptly fell asleep on the drive home.
