During our first visit we did not have time for the Palazzo Piccolomini, so we did it this time: interesting, but not a must visit, IMO. The gardens and the views from the balcony are beautiful, but the lighting is very poor making it really...More

Please take time after your visit to the Palazzo to see this gem of a shop. There are some very interesting and probably hard-to-find books of the history of this region as well as unusual items created by local artisans. You won't be disappointed. Even...More

This small palace must have one of the best views in the world from its loggia. The tours are accompanied with multi-lingual handsets giving you the guided element. Its a must if you're in this area.
