Celebrate “Pedestrian Day” every 16 August in Barni

Above in the hills of Bellagio lies Barni. A small village of 600 residents who keep their traditions alive while preserving the beautiful natural landscape surrounding them. Barni is small, but rich with Antique churches, cobbled stone pavement and walking trails that bring you to picturesque view points.

Barni is nice to visit anytime, but August 16 is a day of  exhibitions, markets, parades, music, shows, food and wine tastings of local products. Private courtyards and gardens that are normally closed to the public will be open for viewing and visits. Everyone is invited to join in the celebrations and you will be made to feel like one of the family.
