Our visit to Palazzo del Duca was certainly a highlight of our trip to Italy. We were thrown back in time by the lovely medieval town of Tavernelle and the Palazzo itself is a gem of a place. The space in our apartment was large and beautiful and though it had the look of a bygone era, it had everything we needed to be relaxed and comfortable. The town was quiet, quaint and friendly. We loved our time there.
Mirella was a kind, considerate and most hospitable host. She was easy to talk to and shared lots of good ideas for day trips in the area. We had a cooking lesson with her that was fun and instructive... and fed us well for two meals.
We would be delighted to return to the Lunigiana area and the Palazzo del Duca especially. The Palazzo is one of those extraordinary places that will always have a place in our hearts.
