We rented Porcaticcio for one week - I wish it had been more. The location is wonderfully peaceful, yet allows accessibility to the whole region. Lovely welcome. Gabriela and Cornelis are wonderful hosts. I would recommend anyone to make the effort to visit.

Getting around
SIGHTSEEING We suggest at least 3: 1. Ravenna, to appreciate the Bizantine mosaics, visit the center and taste the piadina romagnola in Ca’ de Ven. In summertime also a swim in Marina di Ravenna. 2. Dozza-Imola, to see the mural paintings and the castle with its precious Regional Winery in Dozza and visit Imola center, better in market days. 3. Brisighella-Faenza, to stroll in the medieval cozy village of Brisighella and see Faenza center, better in market days.
