After wine tasting near the town, we drove to see the castle. It is beautifully restored. It was closed, since it was vacation time in Italy. Lots of little shops with wonderful Italian food and treats.

Amazing panoramic view. We had a very interesting guided tour in English about the history and architectural design of the castle. Although the tour was supposed to be in Italian the majority of the group were English speakers so our excellent guide spook both.

It was spontanious that we went there. But we are really glad we did it. Really nice stroll. Peaceful area (maybe because of siesta time). We didn't enter the castle but it was worth of visit anyway. Beautiful hills around.

When you enter this small town, the castle is visible and you just have to go there, in hot weather it´s a bit of a challenge, but when you get there happiness is all you feel, magnificent view is the gift.
