Escursione meravigliosa: paesaggi mozzafiato, crepacci da vertigine e un mare di nuvole che ti circonda. Da fare! Almeno arrivare alla prima terrazza panoramica (facile e sicuro) more »Wonderful hike: Breathtaking landscapes, vertigo crevasses and a sea of clouds that surrounds you. to do! At least get to the first rooftop terrace (easy and safe)
Amazing view. It's better to come before 8 am to have the possibility to enjoy the view alone!
A perfect place to watch sunset 🥰
