  • Easy to reach by car or cable car. Once at the top of the hill we leave behind the 21st century and you find yourself in a magical past. A pleasant hop on and off with beautiful panoramic views. Recommended!

  • Park at the base of the funicular and ride it to this quiet walled hilltop city. Well preserved and not overly touristic. Enjoyable for a stroll amount the narrow streets without the crowds and shops ...  more »
  • A beautiful to pass some peace within the walls. Convenient to reach by cable car or on foot. Council take the cable car x climb and walk back downhill admiring the Tuscan landscape and houses under the walls.
