The wife and I visited in June and found the city layout a bit confusing, but the Italians don't and that's what matters. You must have a map here, but there are plenty of tourist places to supply you with one for free, you just...More

What a jewel is this place. Very well preserved and a beautiful place to walk around. One of the best we visited in Italy. And we visited a lot of similar towns. Go there and see yourselves!

Park your car. Go to a tobacco store and ask for a "carta' or "mapa". You can follow the map and find your way to the historical area.

There are many interesting...More

Some nice little streets in the centre, though difficult enough for walking as some are hilly and the marble footpaths are slippy.
