I went as part of a tour group interested in tasting food of the region. We had the long Italian lunch and were more than satisfied. Food was very tasty and interesting.

An extremely well renovated fortress. You actually experience what it must have been like to be here hundreds of years ago. We walked where popes walked and lived. The views are also spectacular. I am not a sightseer; I prefer a good hike. But this...More

We did not enter but we walked around of his perimeter and the view was amazing, you can see all the city from that hight. There is an elevator that can bring you to the top from the parking!

If you are walking all the way up to the Duomo, a very short distance is this stunning edifice. Even if you don't want to walk through, take the time to soak in the views and take some great photos. Highly recommended to visit.
