“Breath-taking!”

Reviewed 5 Feb 2014

Our week long stay at il Forno L'Antica Vetreria was perfect! Our hosts, Colleen and Tom, made sure we were able to enjoy Piegaro, as well as many magnificent, nearby towns. We met two other couples (from college days) and we enjoyed touring, shopping, dining, laughing and feeling "treated." The website has many photos of the town and surrounding areas of interest. One night, after dinner, we walked the quiet streets of Piegaro back to our suite and I felt as if I were in a movie set. The weather, vistas and history make this Italian getaway more than memorable.
