We spent a couple of days in this beautiful medieval city. It’s rich with history and architectural treasures as well as nice and good restaurants. We really lijed it here but do not recommend one stays more than two days.

La Citta Alta is wonderful place to walk along the old streets. You should have a cup of coffee and try the tiramisu on the old square!
