If wanderers ascender the gentle slope of the hill, they’ll be rewarded with atmospheric ruins, botanical richness and breath-taking lake views.

Hailed as one of the town’s most tempting and traditional eateries, La Villa is a restaurant as exquisite and excellent as its name suggests. Fine wine, explosive flavours and Italian flair can be expected in this regal restaurant, whose signature dishes include crisp pizza, spicy shrimp linguine and rich tiramisu.
