We literally were strolling around and found this by accident! A free tour of the wealthy Martelli family home. The rooms, the art, everything gorgeous! What a treat! Tour lasts about 1 hr. Love getting to walk in the shoes of history...

Within a very short walk of Il Duomo is Casa Martelli. Gives you a glimpse how the rich Martelli family lived. Free admission and friendly, semi-personalized guided tour! Make a donation if possible. Carefully check days/hours of operation.

fall in love with this area and in particular, with
its variety of food, especially those focusing on
