The house is located in a small courtyard all surrounded by vegetation. The atmosphere is fairy-like. There is not a giude but there are many panels that explain everything. Strongly recommended in you are a Petrarca's fan.

The house is probably the high point of your visit to this historic village. It dates from around 500 years ago and occupied by a well respected resident. We queued just before the 3.00pm opening time and when we came out the queue was extending right up the hill. The place is well kept and the frescos are impressive. There are artists and old photographs but much of the explanation is in Italian of course. It will not take you long to go round and it is quite shady.

The house is in the upper part of the village - so if you leave your car at the parking place in the vally, you have a long walk to reach it... But it is a nice walk along old stone houses, some churches, restaurants, shops... The house of the poet is nicely restored and worth a visit to learn about Petrarcas life.
