Guests can take their pick of jaw-dropping places to stay, from charming medieval houses… to an actual castle. The latter is called the Palazzo Mannocchi, which can already comfortably fit up to 80 people! Surely, you can’t get more lavish than that.

This historic town also boasts a theatre, an outdoor cinema, gardens, ancient Roman structures, medieval squares, and more. It sits on top of a hill, so you can expect breathtaking panoramas of mountains and rolling agricultural fields that go as far as the eye can see. What’s more, it’s just a short drive from coastal towns if you’re in need of a beach fix.

Now, let’s talk about the price, because that’s obviously something worth noting. Prices start at US$1,577 (~S$2,166) per night, which is probably as expensive as you’d expect to rent an entire town in Italy. But here’s a trick: If you split the cost between a certain number of people, it’s actually not as bad. Let’s say you’ll be a group of 50; each of you will only have to pay US$31.54 (~S$43) a night! (Hey, where there’s a will, there’s a way.)
