A handful of sights
The town’s main attraction is its tower-topped castle. If you have an afternoon spare, take a tour of its bell tower, church remains and fine frescoes. The Town Hall (or Palazzo Gelmetti) also has a fresco or two to admire. Residenza Piavoli is an attractive, 18th-century palazzo, which is well worth taking a peep at too.
The gorgeous green pastures around here are bursting with the best produce, which is why the town’s artisan salami carries an official label of origin. Grab some cold cuts, and savour with crumbling Gran Padano, just-baked bread and a glass of ruby-red Lugana DOC. There are some wonderful wineries around here if you fancy a tasting too.
Head into the hills
If cycling’s up your street, you’ll be well placed here to hit some challenging – but super scenic – routes. Rolling vineyards, secluded farmhouse restaurants and ancient churches will guide you through these storybook hills. If you’re not the biking type, it’s just as lovely to walk.
