At Ponte di Monzone, the 17th-century Villa Giannetti will be open for visits. This villa has belonged to the Giannetti family since it was built! At Gragnola, instead, the Castel dell’Aquila will be open from 10 am to 7 pm. This imposing fortress, built between the 9th and 10th century, enjoys a breathtaking view perched on its hill. Here it will also be possible to taste some local products.
