A 20-minute drive will take you deep into the mountains, and to the breathtaking Sanctuary of Madonna della Corona – a 16th-century chapel that clings to a cliff like some sort of magical floating kingdom. You can bus it to the top, or walk up 1,540 steps if you’re feeling fit. Revel in even more romance as you get lost among the flower beds and fountains at Il Giardino di Casa Biasi.
Time for wine
If wine is your tipple of choice, you’ve lucked out here. There are a bunch of wineries you can visit, and even a brewery if you fancy something a bit different. Top marks go to Monte Zovo Azienda Agricola, thanks to its family-run passion, and award-winning vino. Take the tour of the vineyard and cellars, then enjoy a tasting accompanied by expert advice and gourmet nibbles.
The mountain landscape makes this place a playground for outdoorsy types. You can saddle up at one of the ranches nearby and canter through the countryside, or simply strap on some walking boots to take a hike. At Xadventure , you can try your hand at everything from canoeing to rock climbing.
