Nice walk after visiting the local market. There are quite a few alleys to discover & it's worth the steps up to the tower for the views of the fantastic surrounding countryside

This is an interesting walk of about an hour looking at what is left of the hundreds of original fountains in the small town. You really get a close-up view of the neighborhoods too and some great history.

We got the walking tour map from the tourist office, and did the hour walk which takes in around 20 of the fountains. It's not terribly interesting as it meanders around the town but there are added points of interest like the Resistance museum, which...More
