It's true: the village of Grazzano Visconi is totally fake but it's charming anyway...
Being there feels like being in a big amusement park where you, despite all the other visitors, you end up having a great day.
To be honest, there are better sites to visit all along Italy but if you find yourself in the neighborhood of Piacenza...why don't go there?

I'm fortunate enough to have an Italian fiancee so this summer I visited Italy for 2 1/2 months. We visited four Castle's while I was there and Grazzano Visconti was the first. We visited in August and since most of the country is on vacation, there were only a few shops open. It was still worth the few hours that we spent there and I will have to see it again on my next trip to Italy. Since my tour guide is my wife to be, it made the trip even more special. I'm glad that I had the opportunity to visit and I will visit again.

G.V. Is a bit like marmite - you either like it or not. It's a medieval village - totally fake as it was built just over 100 years ago by the Visconti family. I think it is well worth a visit - they have a really good agricultural museum area and a good selection of tourist shops without the rip off prices that you usually find.
