Walking through the little streets of the city takes you back in medieval area, buildings, shops, tiny streets everything belongs to the past!
Food is very good ( as everywhere in central italy) and the view from the perimetral walls (overlooking the lowland) is breathtaking!
from Roma you can easily take the train which in something like 1h30m will take you at this beautiful destination!
