Towns & Places



The next stretch of the tour again heads up into mountain territory as it makes for Piobbico. Don't waste too much time in the small modern nucleus along the main road. Instead make for the higher end of town where you'll find a splendid castle and the borghetto, a cluster of crumbling medieval houses clinging like limpets to the hillside around it. Originally built in the 13thC by the ruling Brancaleoni family, the castle was given an elegant Renaissance facelift in the 1570s.
