This is Turin's Portmerion - a wonderful, inspirational fake. Built in 1884 for the Turin Expo, it's as authentic a mediaeval village as it can be, and it's so pretty you almost wish you could have lived then - but then you remember the plague...More
The stores were partially closed, impossible to reach in wheelchair. The castle itself is not wheelchair friendly, so I had to give up my plan of going there. Sad that they care so little about people in wheelchair.

We went to the Borgo on a Sunday and a Monday. Sunday we got to see all the vendors and shops in the Rocca and got to tour the Borgo. Monday everything was closed inside the Rocca and no tour, but we were able to really see the village area clearly without all the crowd. We then went on the roundtrip boat ride on the River Po, amazing!
