This small town is worth seeing & spending an hour or two to wander the narrow streets. It clearly deserves the moniker of one of Italy's most beautiful & picturesque villages!!

The town's architecture is very Moorish, so this atmospheric bar with Moroccan day beds and flamenco tunes fits in nicely. The owners are very friendly and even provided a much-needed blanket on a chilly evening.

Small, lovely old town, with the Town hall at its center surrounded by whitewashed houses: hidden corners, alleys, small arches, a fascinating atmosphere
