Travel report

The sky was overcast this morning. When I came out of the bathroom, the rain pattered outside. My bike clothes were still hanging out on the clothesline and were getting wet again. Hit by only a few raindrops I was able to bring them in.

Again an Italian breakfast was served in the guesthouse.

At 9:00 am we were in the saddle and cycled northeast out of the city. After four kilometers we left the suburbs behind us. On narrow side roads with almost no traffic, we cycled through meadows and fields, once crossed the valley to the east and then advanced further to the northeast. For 15 kilometers almost without incline.

But then 120 meters of elevation were to climb at once. At the top it flattened again, and a little later, behind Grana, we descended most of the altitude. Here at the bottom again mainly meadows and fields with cereal cultivation, occasionally sunflower fields. In Casorzo mud was removed from the road. Obviously, the early morning rain had brought down so much rainfall here that soil has been washed from the fields onto the road.

The next interesting village was Vignale. From the west it offers the typical sight of the medieval villages here. The steeples tower above the village, including densely packed rows of houses arranged in a circle. The highest point of the village is about 100 meters above the surrounding area. We cycled about 90 meters up the hill. On an information board, we learned that four rings of defensive walls have been built around the village: around 1000, around 1200, around 1400 and around 1500. Around 1700, the Chiesa di San Bartolomeo was built. The terrace to the west next to the church offers a magnificent view of the hills of Montferrat.

Shortly beyond the village we were 75 meters lower and approached Camagna. In front of the village was the cemetery beside the road. The entire cemetery consists of columbaria. These are predominantly magnificent designed and available for individual families as well as for a consecutive assignment. For the just over 500 inhabitants of the village, this cemetery seems unusually large. Camagna itself stands out through the tower of its church.

Behind Conzano we rolled once again for 120 vertical meters down the hill. Only in Terruggia were 75 meters to climb, then we stayed in the plain and reached after about eight kilometers Casale. The town surprised with its pleasant old town center. A highlight is the interior design of the Romanesque cathedral of Sant'Evasio.

Behind Casale we crossed the river Po. Then we were shortly thereafter surrounded by rice fields, which are in fresh green. These accompanied us to the gates of Vercelli. The landscape here was flat and crossed by many irrigation channels, which are probably fed by the water of the river Po. Amazingly, there were no mosquitoes, although it was warm and humid here. Remarkable were the many birds that were looking for food in the rice fields.

In Vercelli we cycled directly to the accommodation, which was in the first place on our list and we got a room right away. Right next to the pedestrian street of Vercelli.

During the sightseeing we were impressed by the interior of the Duomo S. Eusebio as well as by the Basilica di Sant'Andrea. The building is Romanesque on the outside, early Gothic on the inside. The overall structure as well as the interior left us impressed.

The streets of the old town are very pleasant and lively. The entire Old Town ensemble is harmonious.
