This area of park land has its serious side as there are plaques and lists of those who died in the world wars. The views of the old town and the Italian roofs are wonderful.

You pay Euro 3.00 pp to get inside. The museum may be interesting only to the true Italy history fans. But the views from the tower are amazing.

At the very top of the old town is the castle. The views are incredible. Most of the walls are intact, but was a bot disapointed that there was nowhere to go inside and see the ruins. Could be made more of an attraction for...More
