EX­CUR­SION: DOLCEACQUA

CONCIERGE – The F1 Inside Track - - BEYOND THE TRACK | EXPLORE -

Built in the Mid­dle Ages, and made fa­mous by im­pres­sion­ist mas­ter Claude Monet, the Ital­ian vil­lage of Dolceacqua is a must visit. The cas­tle, once home to the pow­er­ful Ge­noese fam­ily the Do­rias, of­fers sweep­ing views of the old town and is open to vis­i­tors. Monet’s The Cas­tle of Dolceacqua helped im­mor­talise the for­ti­fi­ca­tions but there is much more to see. You are guar­an­teed to get lost in the nar­row, wind­ing streets, but if you are lucky you will dis­cover a store sell­ing the de­li­cious wines and olive oils of the re­gion. The church boasts a Saint De­vote al­tar­piece by Louis Brea, com­mis­sioned by François Grimaldi. www.dolceacqua.it
