Magnificent view when arriving by car from Ferrara. We had mitigated weather and yet the scenery was just stunning. Allas, Italian drivers are a pain in the neck and the places for foot goers scarce...so try your chance without loosing your life :-)

This is another place worth a visit if you are into medieval architecture. The place has a lovely feel to it, but still full of modern day bustle. Lots of little side streets, cafes and individual shops, with plenty of cafes along the way.
