We loved the Palazzo della fraternità dei Laici, and especially the history of the watch that you can admire the façade of the tower. The beautiful dial shows not only the hours, but also the movement of the Sun and moon phases. We visited the town, rich in works of art and historical records, during the antiques fair that takes place every first Sunday of the month. A convenient way to reach the historic center's parking Via Pietri, also known as the parking lot of the escalators. This car park is in part a payment but some areas are totally free and is undoubtedly the best way to access the medieval part of the city. Escalators lead up from the parking lot of the city's Cathedral through via Pietri a tourist centre where you will find all the information about sightseeing and events.show original

I don't think it's a coincidence that many directors, Benigni among them, have chosen as a location for their films. Beautiful in every season, with Christmas markets, beautiful in June and September during the Saracen Joust, pr event which the square fills with colours and fluttering flags of the four districts of the city. A medieval reenactment in style that it overwhelms the city and especially pa square. A must see.show original
