Put Castelmezzano, Italy On Your Small Town Bucket List!

 destinations,Italy   Apr 6, 2017    By

Last summer I wrote about my favorite European small towns, and if I did that article today Castelmezzano would definitely make the cut. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I will start by posting day and night shots. Yeah…it’s really that nice. I love surreal views like this, where you get […]
