Well preserved Medieval and Renaissance architecture ornate this admirable piazza at the top of the funicular railway.

This medieval piazza is dominated by the Baroque Chiesa della Missione, but it is surrounded by many very interesting buildings with a variety of architectural styles. These buildings house many shops and cafes.

Lovely little square at the top of the funicular (or the walk up hill) with lots of little coffee shops, bars etc. A lovely place to sit and watch life going by and a lovely old town to walk around.

After taking the funicular to the top you are greeted by a charming little piazza and a small town, with some stunning views and a very good gelateria. There's not a lot to see or do, but it's pretty and peaceful.
