What a lovely town, and great accommodation with Michelle in Casa Illica. Despite trying to fly into Milan during the Italian 8 hour strike, and taking all day to arrive, cancelling our reservation in Casa Illica, remaking it when we arrived,Michelle organising for someone to be there when and if we arrived, we had a wonderful visit and loved our accomodation there. Only wished that we could have stayed longer, but one never knows what will be there. Now we know, and will stay again for longer. it is a little pricey, but Castell'Arquato is so worth it!
