Valstagna / Italy: A good beginning of our holidays…

… but without diving.
Before we can move into our flat at lake Attersee we had three days of our holidays. So we research what we can do until. A trip to Valstagna in Italy for diving in three caves „Grotta dei Fontanazzi“, „Elefante Bianco“ and „Grotte di Oliero“ seemed to be a good idea.

So we booked a flat on Monte Grappa. We were a little bit surprised about the twisting road. On the half way to the top we found our accomodation. The name „Space of love“ was a little bit crazy but the flat was good and the view breathtaking.

On the day after arriving we went to the diving place. But the thunderstorms on the days before especially on the last night made high water in the cave and a very heavy current. There was nothing with diving. We were disappointed. But we did know that there was a risk for diving in the caves. We didn’t know before if there ist the possibility for diving because of weather etc.

Also it wasn’t possible to dive in the other two caves because of high water.

And now? The region has a lot of sights. So we decided to spend the rest of the day in Bassano del Grappa without trying Grappa but with a big pizza.

Because of having one day left in Italy and the city isn’t far away and Peter had never been and Steffie 25 years ago we planned a trip to Venice. With sunny, hot weather we let  gondola, small alleys, channels, bridges, cappuccino, gelato and more act on us. At the end of the day we were happy but broken of this exiciting town.

The same evening we had to say: „Ciao bella Italia! We will come back – but for diving!!!“
