While strolling the stone-paved streets of this lovely town, make a stop on the Piazza il Vecchietta, which got its name in honor of the talented architect, painter, and sculptor Lorenzo di Pietro, also famous as Vecchietta. What is more, here you can also find a beautiful fountain and even degust some of the locally produced wines.
