Spend the day as a “Camuno”
A classic destination for Italian school trips is Capo di Ponte, home to Italy’s first archaeological park dedicated to rock engravings and the most important of the 170 sites in Valcamonica where marks have been found on rocks attributed to the ancient Camuni people.
A complete visit to the National Park of Rock Engravings, located in Naquane, takes at least a couple of hours. To make it accessible to partially sighted people, a Braille translation of the panel texts is available, illustrating the most significant engravings that depict warriors, animals, chariots, ploughs, oxen and hunting scenes.
You can satisfy your sweet tooth with a typical snack of the Valle dei Segni: the spongada, a sweet focaccia that looks like a small loaf of bread, sprinkled with sugar or in tasty chocolate, pistachio or jam varieties.
Also worth visiting is the nearby Archeopark in the hamlet of Boario Terme. After a 20-minute drive, you will arrive in the car park of this impressive amusement park, where time seems to stand still thanks to the impeccable reconstruction of a pile-dwelling village. Children and adults alike are sure to enjoy various fun-filled activities that perfectly suit the area, including archery, sailing on a pirogue canoe, and a workshop dedicated to copper processing.
