A short drive from Folgaria, and on our way up to lunch at the fabulous Malga Millegrobe in Laverone, we stopped at Luserna. Perched some 1,350 metres above sea level, this tiny town, with some 300 residents, is unique in that they mostly speak Cimbrian here (German with definite Bavarian tendencies); not that we heard anyone speaking, it seemed that we were the only people about on our way through on this particular day.
Most famous for its skiing, it’s worth stopping off in Luserna at any time of year, even if it’s just for ten minutes. Stop the car, stretch your legs, and just breath and take it all in… Your soul will thank you for it!
I don’t for a minute think that the residents ever do, but I know I could never take these views for granted if I lived there…

What gorgeous views! I read posts of yours like this and realise just how much of Europe I’ve not seen, or even heard of!
There really is so much to see! Thanks very much Penny! :)
I love mountain views. It is gorgeous there!
It really is isn’t it? Thank you! :)

I’d never get anything done if I lived there, I’d be far too busy admiring the view!
Gorgeous isn’t it? Me too Mary! :D Thank you…
I love Luserna and there’s a fab little restaurant there too. Well worth a visit as you say. I’m so glad you enjoyed your visit and I never tired of those views whilst living there.
Will have to head there next time Mari! Thank you! :) x
I got to the end of that post and found myself taking big deep breaths as though I was trying to inhale some lungfuls of that lovely fresh mountain air! Looks beautiful x
The air really is so clean here, the lichens around and about the place are like those air plant things! :D Thanks Ruth! :)
Oh I hope I one day find myself in Luserna.
It is a gorgeous part of the world, and I would really recommend staying in Folgaria, and popping to Malga Millegrobe for lunch – one of those meals we will never forget! :)
Had never heard of Cimbrian before.
Looks a gorgeous little place.
Thanks Trish. I am sad I didn’t hear anyone speaking it! Might be the only time in Italy that I understand a bit more of the conversation! :D
