We love traveling and being able to explore culture and cuisine, so this was a perfect adventure. We walked all around this beautiful little town at a leisurely pace and made eight stops over the course of 3.5 hours. The hosts were great and every stop had something incredible to offer- wonderful local art, amazing food and wine, and plenty of laughs!
