Magical Corippo

After our time in German-speaking Frutigen, we headed south for a few hours to Locarno, in Ticino, the Italian-speaking region of Switzerland. I’ve already shared the video of our spectacular journey through the mountains, and the change from the alpine feel to a richer, more earthy Italian vibe was almost immediate as we entered the region.

Some friends recommended a trip up the valley to a hillside village called Corippo so we braved the steep, winding, single track road up to a village that time forgot. The moss-covered cobbled alleys and steps, weather-worn stone buildings, bright pots of flowers and complete peace (well as peaceful as we could get the twins to be) took my breath away.
