Forget Venice, Rome and Florence and their crowds of tourists. The beauty and millenary history of Italy also lies in its secret corners, little villages where time seems to stand still. From Piedmont to Sardinia, this series will take you to the discovery of 16 unexpected and unique gems. A stronghold suspended between the clouds welcomes you to the 2500 years old village of Civita di Bagnoregio (Latium), the minuscule island of San Giulio (Lake d’Orta, Piedmont) will make you feel like a monk of the Middle-Age, while the baroque churches overlooking the turquoise waters of Otranto, will reveal the invaluable treasures of Apulia.
