Fantastic Views : During springtime with a sunny day, the view is just incredible with a 360deg panorama seeing from the Alps summit with snow to Milan valley. It takes some time to reach there by car and you have to end up with your feet but definitely worth it. One of the best sceneries I’ve seen in 2018 !!

Just Amazing : Mostly liked the bell tower of the church. Inside - the remains of an ancient fresco. If you are in the Duomo museum - visit because it is on a sightseeing trail and the entrance is paid. If you do not want to go to the museum - just look out of the street.

Can't Afford To Miss : The visit to the castle is pleasant, even if not all the spaces are visible. From a stepped internal ramp presumably made to directly access the bridal chamber with the horses is very interesting as well as the room itself which has a fairly limited development unlike what can be imagined in the photos.
