“The Madonna di Tirano” dating back to the 1504. Picture form the air.

Finally made it to Italy to a quaint old Town called   Tirano.

Switzerland trip part 4

The terminal station at the south end of the Bernina Railway. When you arrive in Tirano from Switzerland with the Bernina Express you drive right past the  historic “The Madonna di Tirano” dating back to the 1504.

A town in Valtellina, in the province of Sondrio, Northern Italy. It has about 9,044 inhabitants and is adjacent to the Switzerland – Italy boundary.

Departed the Bernina Express later in the afternoon we immediately started looking for a Hotel.

Hotel Corona Happy to have found the perfect Hotel Corona great prices, very clean room, friendly staff and walking distant to terminal station for the next day.

I had forgotten that in Europe lots of Restaurants close their kitchen till 6 or 7 pm so no supper till then… So we decided to go sight-seeing.

a stone bathtub outside that has the water from the mountain go though it,   Truly a very historic Town.   But one that has a very busy many road coming from the south of Italy that bring goods into Switzerland.

Schon lange wollte ich nach Italien.

  Wir sind in einer malerischen alt Stadt namens

Tirano.

Die Endstation am südlichen Ende der Berninabahn. Wenn Du von der Schweiz mit dem Bernina-Express ankommst,
fährt die Bahn gerade bei der historischen “The Madonna di Tirano” aus dem 1504 vorbei. Gleich als wier von der Bernina ExpressBahn ausstiegen, fragten wie nach Hotels für eine Nacht. Glücklich waren wir das Hotel Corona mit guten Preise, saubere Zimmer und freundliches Personal gefunden zu haben das auch in der Nähe von dern Bahn ist.

This home has at leased 30 bottles of wine just siting on the steps...so unique

Ich hatte vergessen, dass in Europa viele Restaurants die Küche, bis 18:00 oder 19:00 Uhr schliessen.So kein Abedessen bis dann …

Also beschlossen wir etwas herum zu laufen und die Gegend an zu sehen. Alte Gebäude, kleine Straßen, sehr alte Türen, ein Stein Badewanne draussen wo das Wasser aus dem Berg durchfliesst.

Wirklich eine sehr historische Stadt. Aber eine, die eine sehr befahrene Hauptstraße hat die aus dem Süden Italiens, die Waren in die Schweiz bringt.

Oh habe das doch fast fergessen. Gelato die Glasse von Italien ..und ich habe das ganz verpassed zum schlecken…ja nun muss ich noch einmal nach Italien gehen. Ja der” Chianti” auch eine Spezialität von Italien. Oh und die fahren mit ihrne Autos sogar auf dem Fussgängern Wegen. Lustig das zu sehen…
