  • Very nice, well decorated and without exaggeration. Attention in the winter months: search go as long as there is sunlight, otherwise it gets too dark.

  • A surprise super nice find the Cathedral to walk the streets of As, were passing through the Lake and drew attention for its grandeur in the middle of streets so narrow and quiet, we couldn't get in because he was in retirement, but the wealth of detail in the facade in left with taste of "I want more". There are a few bars and shops in front of the Cathedral, where you can sit to enjoy the beauty and the charm of a super charming and cozy environment.

  • A graft of different styles of the time it took to build it up, but also by an unprecedented effort to a town so small: the antagonism with Milan is the host and gives us something unique in Lombardy
