  • The archaeological site is free and open access, as well as the small church nearby. Are interesting historically lap the remains of Castrum and what remains of frescoes in the Church nearby. You arrive by car, passing through the Woods.

  • A place where there is an air of tranquility. Well maintained and great for learning both for recreation in the parks. The kids really like it because it seems to go back in time and above all are free to run and play. Everything is free including the small but interesting Museum. Is there a car park as well as some tables under the trees.

  • A nice walk in the Woods takes us back in time. The site is totally free, parking is easy (next information centre), and the indicative signs explain in a simple and concise (in Italian, English and German) the remains of the vast "Castrum" explored on foot (45 min/1 hour). The Church of Santa Maria foris portas is also can be visited free of charge upon request at the infopoint to accompany you to open the door, locked. Inside is a rare cycle of frescoes of the 7th-9th centuries, depicting the life of Mary and Jesus. Nice even a portion of mosaic floor. Unesco from 2011, after having visited you can't not complete the tour with a visit to the nearby monastery and Tower of peat (5 minutes by car). Just a pity he couldn't visit the Antiquarium, in the Castrum, as open only by reservation.

  • Castelseprio was built when Milan became capital of the Western half of the Roman empire. Duke Ottone Visconti destroyed it in 1287 and forbade to ever rebuild it. An interesting example of non-classical archaeology. Admission is for free.
  • a wonderful Archaeological Park and well kept rich in history. Wonderful frescoes in Santa Maria Foris Portas unique in Europe, not to be missed
