D1 Milano - D1 way to Ivrea

Last Sunday I decided to visit Ivrea, a small city close to Turin. Ivrea is also known for the way its citizens celebrate Carnival. The symbol of this big and colorful event is the ‘orange’.

Ivrea is also typical for its river called Dora Baltea. I was walking by it and I got lost in such amazing landscape. Battle of the oranges is very peculiar. Here people don’t wear fancy dresses or masks for celebrating Carnival. They organize a big parade! All the oranges come from Sicily, every year thousands of oranges are required to set such a big celebration.
