Beautiful view looking through the arches, down the steps and opening onto the Square. With the mountains in the background, it gives the feeling of an alpine village. A very pleasant stop before we headed back to Rome.

Situated near Piazza Garibaldi is the wonderful mediaeval aqueduct, built in 1256, it has 21 arches and is 100 metres long. It is by no means as big and imposing as a lot of other aqueducts, nor is it as old. Then you stop and...More
