                                                                                                  5 of 5

Although obviously there are not sites to rival the main Italian artistic cities there is still plenty to see and equally interesting places such as Cremona, Parma and even Milan are all easily reached on public transport. The apartment is clean, warm and despite the limitations of the kitchen a really comfortable place to stay. The owners are welcoming and helpful and I can't recommend this place enough.
