The walk through Via delle Volte was the most unique stroll in the countryside. The feeling of history was so strong and the views through the city walls were incredible. The little ships built into the wall were sweet and while we didn’t have a...More

the underground historical road is unique, it runs under the old buildings of the village and you can cross it one side to the other like in the middle age!
