  • We arrived on Christmas day to a sleepy medieval town of towers that are mystical and marvelous. We were able to walk around everyplace with few other visitors.

  • An absolute must to see and climb. The towers aren't that difficult to go up if you're in okay shape and the views from the above are absolutely spectacular. TIP for visitors: learn on wikipedia about the significance of this place so that you can truly appreciate it when visiting!
  • Postcard perfect. Beautiful, historic. A jewel in the countryside of Tuscany
