A veritable hidden pearl with its own Queen, Teodolinda, a Carolingian beauty. Originally walls circumnavigated the entire town. Go in Piazza Duomo, where you will find a mini-sized version of Milan’s dome. The treasure is right there; the corona ferrea. And at the end of Viale Cavriga stands the Villa Reale, where the Savoia family once lived.
