The first little trip we took from the castle was to Montagnana. It was only around 30 minutes drive through the beautiful countryside from Villa Bartolomea.
Montagnana is a small village with an old town surrounded by a well preserved medieval city wall and is famous for its delicious prosciutto.
We couldn’t leave the city before buying some good prosciutto to take back to the castle. I liked the small store with the hams hanging from the ceiling and the happy staff that let us taste the ham.
