Perched on a rather perilous seeming cliff, the town is sometimes referred to as Italy’s Little Jerusalem. Though the synagoge is rarely in use, it has been turned into a lovely historical landmark.
The rocky village is worth a visit, full of twisting alleys, dark passage ways, friendly locals and delicious Tuscan home cooking to keep you warm even on rainy January days.
Plus, planters filled with kitties which is always sure to be a hit with me.
And an Ape in every shade!
If you want to book a trip, we stayed at Il Tufo Rosa, a comfortable home base with the bonus of delicious organic olive oil for sale downstairs. (Tufo is the kind of rock the city is built of).
