LOADING/UNLOADING LUGGAGE

  • It is possible to arrive by car until the entrance door of the palace (max stop 20 minutes). You will be sent a map of the historic centre with the route to follow. The car can then be parked outside the town walls (less than 10 minutes by walk).

WHERE CAN I PARK?

  • There are several parking lots located just outside the walls. For example, the parking spaces delimited by white stripes along Via Don. E. Castaldi street are free of charge (primary school area). From here the apartment is 10-12 minutes by walk following the indications for the historical centre. Alternatively, you will find 4 paid municipal car parks: among these, the n.1 ''Jubilee'' car park in Via Lavagnini is the cheapest one (Euro 6.00 / day). The municipal car parks provide the city-bus shuttle service that goes up to the historic centre. Tickets can be purchased on board and the nearest stop to the apartment is that of ''Piazza Duomo''. On bank holidays, the shuttle bus does not run in the centre but it stops in front of the south entrance city gate ''Porta San Giovanni'' (you can then continue on foot - 7/8 minutes)
