You never know what you could find inside in the castle.
We knew there was a pool hidden inside the castle somewhere so we packed our swimmers on a beautiful day in search of hot sun on our skin! We found the pool inside one of the castle hotels covered in vines next to the cathedral, it was hidden among the garden terraces. Such a beautiful backdrop, we packed a little picnic and ate beside the pool soaking up the sun and taking in the view. The hotel had amazing views of the castle with little intimate places to sit and have coffee. Later we got nutella crepes and had some amazing food at one of the restaurants. Day well spent!
