Interesting plazza market that was originally build as a theater during the Roman era. A lot of the original theater wall makes up the outside of the current buildings.

This is just a beautiful place, whether you are walking through, shopping or sitting drinking cocktails. We had the best Bellinis we have ever tasted and nibbles at midday! We returned one evening for cocktails before we went for a meal elsewhere just for the ambiance.

You can spot the curvature of the buildings that make up this former Roman amphitheater. There are many interesting shops and places you can sit down and enjoy lunch. There are also souvenir shops.Its nice just to wander through.

Beautiful piazza in what was formerly a Roman Amphitheater. Five or six small restaurants and the same number of stores and gift shops ring the piazza. Some have doors on both sides of the Piazza and the neighboring streets.

Walking down the narrow streets of this charming medieval town, you see a slightly rounded building with an arched entrance way.There is no indication that you are about to enter anampitheatre that used to house 10,000 spectators! A mini -colusseum! Entering, you are in the center of an ancient ampitheatre! So incredibly beautiful. colorful and alive, it is my favorite... More

Arrounded with nice ancient palazzos, oval like an Anfitheatro, with her romantic ochre facades, a real sense of smel the toscana, not to much tourists, some nice terraces and cafes, place for market and also festivals in summer season.
