Are you ready to explore Gradara and its medieval secrets?
Gradara is a beautiful medieval castle, known for the tragic love of Paolo and Francesca. However, Gradara was a major stronghold, on the border between different duchies. The tour will show the castle, its walls, its armory. But don’t worry, you’ll also see Francesca’s beautiful dress! The tour begins at the gates of the town, where we’ll talk a bit about war, since the middle ages and up to WWII.
Then we’ll visit the castle (4€ ticket) with its courtyards, armories and painted rooms. Eventually I’ll guide you on the town walls (1€), from which we can see a beautiful landscape, but also talk about sieges and fencing. Additionally (or instead of the walls, if it is raining) we can visit the museum of middle ages (4€ or less).
