We visited this village after stumbling across it whilst driving through the region and so had no preconceptions about what we might find there.
It was fairly busy but there was parking (free for first hour) and it was a few minutes walk to the start of the gentle climb up some steps to the start of the village.
We had thought it was simply a few remains at the top of some hillside but this is an incredible and largely still intact medieval village with beautiful winding cobbled streets, pretty doorway, beautiful views, flowers, shops, cafes, restaurants, churches and noticeably friendly, smiley residents/vendors.
The shops are mostly touristy but still selling lovely items and it was nice to browse around them. There was an area where you could pay and access more but we didn’t bother with that, there was still heaps so see and do that was free. A really enjoyable place to spend a couple of hours (or longer) and not so busy that we felt claustrophobic or that you couldn’t move at your own pace.
My only slight disappointment is a lack of more accessible information explaining different areas around the site. But it’s not a bit deal, just would have been nice to learn more about the history.
