Rome, the national capital, is situated roughly 260 miles (418 kilometers) to the southeast of Castelverde, while Milan is 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the northwest.
Don't limit yourself to Castelverde, because Lombardy contains plenty of cultural and scenic attractions which await the savvy traveler. Check out the Cathedral of Cremona and Torrazzo of Cremona in Cremona, approximately 4 miles (6 kilometers) from Castelverde. A drive to Piacenza is another great option. It's around 18 miles (29 kilometers) from Castelverde and where you'll find the Duomo di Piacenza and Garilli Stadium.
Salsomaggiore Terme, is another interesting place to visit. It is around 25 miles (40 kilometers) from Castelverde and offers a diverse range of tourist attractions, such as Mazzini Park, Salsomaggiore Golf Club and Jesolo Golf Club. If you are after more entertainment it's worth investigating Thermae Di Salsomaggiore and Scipione Castle before you head back to Castelverde.
Holy places are often the best places to experience a community's big beating heart. The churches of Lombardy are certainly no exception. Enjoy a little culture, learning and lore amid the great outdoors at the region's fascinating open-air markets, gardens and open-air museums.
Paragliding is a great option for visitors longing to get in touch with their inner-daredevil. Take your own equipment or rent some when you get here, and discover the local water activities. Kite surfing is an option. Another one is wind surfing.
When it's time to head back to your friends and family at home, you'll be bidding this special place a sad Ciao (farewell).
