Our driver Stefano from GET tours kindly showed us both Bramasole's - the one purchased and renovated for the movie and the real one where the acclaimed author actually lives. Very happy to have seen both

It's a nice hike outside of town through a beautiful park. Road is ok to walk on, not that much traffic. If you liked the movie, you will enjoy seeing Bramasole.
