The medieval town of Borghetto

Borghetto- Italy from the Inside

In my opinion, the medieval town of Borghetto, near Verona, is one of Italy’s best kept secrets. A tiny and picturesque village, Borghetto is known for its water mills and romantic setting. You can even spend a night in one of the mills and enjoy the suggestive view over the Mincio river.

 

La casa di Francesco Petrarca

Italy from the Inside

Francesco Petrarca is considered one of the earliest humanists and one of the most important Italian poets of the Renaissance. This is the house where he died and that is definitely worth a visit in case you are near Arquà, in the Veneto region.

PS: In case you wonder, that’s not me. You know when you want to take a photo and people don’t move?!?
