Once upon a time the Grand Tour existed, the traveler left for months an went to places of Europe still untouched: he crossed virgin landscapes, landed in marvelous cities, in remote villages full of charm, known only by the people who lived there. A trip to Gualtieri is an experience inspired by all this. A small contemporary Grand Tour in one of the most beautiful villages in Italy: Gualtieri lends itself. Renaissance center of extraordinary artistic and architectural value, still remains a pristine jewel full of beauties to be discovered. And then 2 days in which all the most significant places of Gualtieri will open to the traveler: Palazzo Bentivoglio, the Ligabue Museum, the Umberto Tirelli Collection, the Social Theater of Gualtieri, the churches of the Madonna della Neve and of the Annunziata. But above all the spaces that normally remain closed most of the year. All accompanied by the possibility of having dinner and lunch in the splendid Piazza Bentivoglio, savoring the typical dishes of the territory.
