It’s nearly mid-November and as usual this is a particularly warm week, in fact it’s called “Estate di San Martino” (San Martino’s summer). It’s the last heat wave prior to the upcoming winter. The weather is very mild during the daytime, although come the evening and overnight, the temperature drops to low single digits.



In this article I’m showing you a beautiful easy to medium difficulty walk of about 5hrs all together. We are in the Piemonte region, 45min north of Turin airport there’s the town of Ivrea from which you can see the Serra Morenica hill with the Mombarone peak at the top. This walks can be done from several starting points, although this one showed here it starts from San Giacomo above the village of Andrate.

It’s an amazing walk full of scenery starting from woodlands that open up to a vaster, open panoramic space that overlooks the surrounding landscape below. On a day with clear, blue skies you can see as far as Turin and beyond, with all the surrounding mountain range and the highest peaks of the European Alps.

It’s a fantastic day out that doesn’t require a very high level of fitness and that I recommend to everyone. If you want to know more and need more information, don’t hesitate to contact: fabulouSport @ gmail com.
