  • A beautiful centre which is good but somewhat overrated as there are hundreds of other towns which have nice historical centres. It's still worth a visit.  more »
  • Dont miss San Giminiano if you are in the neighbourhood. Totally worth a visit or even a short walk through the city. The parking is easy to find and close to the city wall.  more »
