Built entirely of tuff, the town contains the stunning Palazzo Orsini, the original home of the powerful family whose name it takes. A visit here is not complete without seeing the Salvini theatre, built in 1823 by the Società Filodrammatica dei Ravvivati; the Jewish Quarter, the Medici aqueduct and the Vie Cave, or Etruscan paths.
You feel you’re breathing history and touching it with your hand when you stroll among the cobbled streets of this tuff stone town. Its origins are ancient: already in existence in the Etruscan period, the height of its splendour was under Roman rule, when it was elevated to a municipality and annexed to Rome.
Regardless of the town’s history, its architecture is typically medieval.
