1 Torrente Fer, Piedmont
Torrente Fer, near the forest of Cignas, is a beautiful place. It is easy to see why Camillo Benso, the Count of Cavour, was devoted to this area: natural pools running between large, smooth rocks, where emerald waters flow from one waterfall to another. It is also a great place to go canyoning. A picnic area is not far from the first set of pools, but it does get crowded here on summer days. Walk for a few minutes to reach the upper pools where it is secluded and quiet. The large boulders that surround the pools allow you to dive or lie in the sun. A truly spectacular place.
