Overall Guide : Great place to live the 'Italian dream'. Safe & secure not just because it is surrounded by walls this year the celebrate the 500 anniversary of the walls. Julius Ceasar built the amfiteatro and this has been incorporated into shops... more and homes but walking around the outside you can still see the arches and gateways. It has easy transport to other parts and plenty to do in the winter months. Not to mention friendly people and wonderful food and wine and the best olive oil.
