A great end of an afternoon visit. Took about 1.5 hrs to cover the whole town and was finished with a fantastic 'gelati' at the small bar on the way into the town.

We visited this medieval town and we liked it. It is small so you can visit it fast. It has many picturesque corners but it still needs a lot of work to look great. Many houses are empty or almost falling apart, there are cables...More

You can find hundreds of quaint villages like these, all over Italy. Calcara comes overrated. Small, not particularly well maintained and with a 2 km walk to the parking lot. Tourist bait.
