  • Beautiful place certainly to come back, because 1 and a half days is not enough to see definitely the Museum and Park in his heart ... for the rest of the villages roundabout and viggianello are beautiful and manicured, are truly living the magic of holidays suitable for families with children. We were blown away. Will return.

  • Starting from Colle Impiso you reach the peak of pollino passing beautiful landscapes where you can meet grazing horses or cows. A nice rise not suitable for children. The last hour of walking is not well marked with the classic red and white signs, but you will find the men.

  • With its peaks and green and deep valleys is an unforgettable spectacle that takes your breath away ... To visit in all seasons but for me it is beautiful in the spring. The food then is high quality: cheeses, breads in a wood oven, cold meats and fine wines. Still tied to traditions and lie together genuineness and moderately priced.
