  • Very nice village of Arquà, with evocative nooks and workshops where you can taste local products. In particular, it is worth visiting the House of Petrarch, construction consisting of an original part of the 13th century and part amended by the door and again in the 16th century, when Renaissance style Loggia were added and the external staircase and is especially so what are you do paint the walls with scenes inspired by the Canzoniere, triumphs and Africa, all works of the poet. The frescoes are almost all well kept and every room is accompanied by explanations quite exhaustive.

  • Located in the village of Arquà Petrarca. It's a pretty House well renovated. With a small garden. Inside there are frescoes dating back to the period when Petrarch lived there. Two vintage ' finds ' kept in a room not accessible but with two glass doors that allow their view. You can watch a video that explains in a short life is the last years of the life of poet and writer.

  • A well cared for and is particular in the footsteps of the last years of the great poet. Original wooden ceilings and frescos. Beautiful village around the village, to explore on foot (beware of many roads uphill) to catch glimpses to capture even more striking in the clear and sunny day and with the warm colors of autumn. Great romantic walk too ...
