After entertaining us for 6 weekends in a row last year, the Swiss Carnival saga returns at last! While waiting for the big Rabadan Carnival (on February 19th), it's Chiasso's turn to kick off the party.

There will be plenty of music and food, so once again the idea is to combine a hike with the Carnival.

Plan is to get to Chiasso (Switzerland) at 10:30 and soak up the Carnival atmosphere. At midday we'll see if we can grab a dish of risotto or tripe for lunch ( Protected content ), then in the afternoon we'll move to Pedrinate and have a hike between Italy and Switzerland. Ultimate goal is the PIn Umbrela lookout point, a natural terrace overlooking lake Como ( Protected content ). We'll then likely head back to Chiasso, across a Tibetan bridge and down the stairs of Paradise. We should be back in Chiasso around 5pm. If we succeed, we might still be in time to visit the Max museum of art, which is free on the first Sunday of the month.

PS: make sure to bring documents with you! It's extremely unlikely that they will check your ID card in Chiasso, but you never know!
