  • 4 days break in Tuscany and returning with the camper to Bologna we decide to stop at this location. Short stroll and reach the main square where the funicular in the upper part of the village. Unfortunately, given the late hour that we reached was virtually everything is closed and we didn't get to visit several attractions of historical interest, however the walk in the village, in 30/40 minutes you visit all, deserves. We will definitely be returning!
