This is a Palazzo built for a prince of the church who went on to become a Pope, Pius the 2nd. The unusual part about this home is that it retains its original furnishings from the 15th and 16th century. The structure of the house...More

We caught a glimpse of the gardens from outside the walls and we were keen to get a better view which meant going into the Palazzo. At the time of our visit there was also an exhibition marking the 50th Anniversary of the making of...More

There were really beautiful views from garden and second story terrace. It was kind of disorganized but still nice. The audio guide had lots of interesting info about the family, the building, and the area. If you have the time worth a visit, if you...More

Please take time after your visit to the Palazzo to see this gem of a shop. There are some very interesting and probably hard-to-find books of the history of this region as well as unusual items created by local artisans. You won't be disappointed. Even...More

You could miss it as it’s next to church and hasn’t got an imposing entrance. But do go and see it. Do take the audio tour otherwise it’s going to be a bit light on information. It’s on the basic side but there is enough...More
