This is a charming hill town, which Italy is famous for. We walked through the walls to the city, and meandered through the historical old streets to our restaurant. It was quiet and beautiful.

Fiumefreddo Bruzio is a small charming town, with narrow and cozy streets. From the castle you can admire the gorgeous Tyrrhenian sea and if you catch the sunset, the view is even more amazing.

Been vacationing here for over 20 years since my family is from the area. Beautiful old town with medieval castle looking overlooking the marina. Amazing vistas and beautiful beach. Everything you want from an Italian vacation away from tourist trap destinations. See for yourself

A small town with a castle on top of a hill with stunning views. You need a car to get to it. Lovely place to take photos.

This town is unbelievable, perched way up on a mountain with fantastic ocean views. Originally had 5 churches and 6 monasteries or convents. A (now destroyed in WWII) castle built by the Normans and then the Spanish. Lovely winding streets. Art (paintings and sculpture) in...More

We love to visit the medieval towns on this list! Many of these "borghi" have castles and ancient churches, palaces and lots of beautiful antiquity - we love to wander the tight vias and under the arches, never knowing what we will find around the...More
