Plus there is the local food market in Piazza del Popolo, every Thursday and Saturday (closes at 1pm) where you can pick up the freshest local produce to cook at home.

The city of Viterbo (45 minute drive) is a Medieval gem of a city, built on much older Etruscan foundations. It is home to some stunning palaces, including the not-to-be-missed Palazzo dei Papi, the Papal seat for twenty years in the 1300’s. There are many thermal springs in the region and the grandest of all are the Terme dei Papi – fit for a Pope, so certainly worth a visit.

Presence of works of art by a well-known Danish artist Louis Rosen Schmidt. The house is furnished with his works and shows its history as a kind of museum. Among these works are people’s landscapes and playful erotic nudes, nothing vulgar but all artistic positioned in the passageway and not in the rooms or halls. Please be careful, with regard to all the works, please do not handle them because they are valuable works, we apologise if they are not appreciated by every single guest, they certainly bring lustre to the house as well as added value.
