Wed - We marched through pouring rain to a local river and walked along the river for its full length. The wide, voluminous Fiumelatte, meaning 'river of milk', is only 820 ft long and is referred to as the shortest river in Europe. It emerges as a gushing spring from the side of the mountain and ...
