    Not something I would normally think about but I've just filled up at what was the most welcoming and wonderful petrol station of my life . Shockingly cheap fuel after €1.35-1.55 in the large valley towns. Heading from Bormio to Bolzano.

    Eni at Trepalle
    * diesel at €0.855/litre - that's 74p !
    * three cheerful petrol pump attendants
    * a nice dog ;-)
    * the views!
    * great, loud music from their little booth
    * smoke to one side, whilst they fuel (I didn't but a couple of lady drivers were)

    Thanks for the tip. Driving through France to Interlaken, Bormio, Val-d'Isère, Nice, Monaco then back up through the Black Forest over 5 days next month. Scenery in northern Italy and Switzerland is stunning though.

    Switzerland, in my opinion, is the most beautiful country in the world.

    A few years back, I was on holiday on the west coast of Ireland and filled up at a mid-size petrol station (half a dozen pumps). When I went in to pay, the attendant asked me how much I had taken and charged me for that - she had no link to the pumps from the cashier's desk and relied on customers being truthful. Nice!
