Zach Profile

I've been deliberately visiting WHS as part of my travels for the last ten years, and for much longer before that when I didn't realize what they were. I've set a goal of trying to visit all of them (to the extent possible), because even if I don't see them all, it's still a great starting off point for ideas on exploring a country.

Longobards in Italy

Zach USA - 15-May-24

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the one Longobard site I visited so far (Castelseprio-Torba), partly due to apprehension from reading some of the previous reviews, but also because I don't think I could have chosen a day with worse weather. One benefit of going on one of the rainiest days in May that anyone I spoke to could remember is that I was the only visitor in the park.

Thankfully, much has seemingly improved since Els's visit with regard to signage and navigation, as I began to see signage for the archeological park for several kilometers. I drove, and Google Maps had the correct location and a parking lot available next to the info point
