A fairytale town, Compiano is perched along the ridge of a mountain where the Taro river cut through the green valleys of Emilia Romagna. It is a beautiful ancient little town that dates back to 800 A.D., and the castle there has withstood time beautifully, and is now a luxury boutique hotel, complete with pool parties, cooking courses, and masonry museums. Here is a little walkthrough of the town as well.
