IT: Autunno in Carnia

Of all the seasons, autumn is certainly the most spectacular one, as if after the summer explosion, Mother Nature reserves the grand final with the brilliant colours of the foliage, offering  sceneries that take one’s breath away. After all, isn’t autumn the sunset of summer? And like all the sunsets, autumn inflames the world of vibrant red, bright yellow and orange and lits the first fires in the fireplaces of Carnic homes, tempting us to sip a cup of hot chocolate or mulled wine while enjoying the warmth of the fire and the romantic atmosphere in which we are immersed

All the leaves are brown
and the sky is grey…

But don’t worry!  If the sky is grey, you can still find some blue or green in Carnia: in our alpine lakes, in the crystal clear waters of brooks and rivers, in the evergreen trees
