Itinerary Details

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Castello di Torrechiara

Private guided tour to Torrechiara castle, built between 1448 and 1460 by Pier Maria Rossi.

The amazing "Camera d'Oro", ascribed to the last one, celebrates the love story between Pier Maria Rossi and Bianca Pellegrini, together with the family power, since all the castles ruled by the Count are represented. The tour will go through the stables, the ancient kitchens, the main court, Saint NIcomede's Chapel and the frescoed halls.
