On the trail of Sissi

Empress Elisabeth of Austria and Queen of Hungary, also known as Sissi, stayed in August 1897 for a long relaxing holiday at the Grand Hotel Carezza. She undertook extensive excursions through the surrounding area. This walk was one of her favorites. In her honor, this walk today is called "Elisabethpromenade".
