  • Fantastic looking building. There was a festival on, which meant we could not get inside, hence not a 5. The festival itself was great. The festival of the candles.
  • The museum is great, with a really comprehensive collection of items showcasing the history of the region over thousands of years. The highlight is the tablets in the ancient (and now lost) Umbrian language. It's also worth visiting just to see the inside of the building which is one of the best in the city.
  • Great place for the view, with only one bar on the square it is not full of stuff either and has a nice open feel.
  • The festivals here are taken very seriously. A great day for all !
  • Bel panorama
