  • An interesting fountain in the main piazza. Look at the details in it. Can be quite busy on Sundays.

  • For me the best round fountain in the middle of a square I have seen....till now. Sure there is Trevi, but it is not round and is stuck to the building....so. Little statues on the side are beautiful and is close to 800years old, so amazing Middle ages achivement.
  • Beautiful area to visit full of historical architecture and shops
