A former Papal refuge in northern Lazio
This town in Lazio 80km north of Rome is among of the best preserved medieval towns in central Italy. It was a refuge for medieval popes and the seat of Farnese family power during the subsequent Renaissance. Today, it is a sleepy university town perhaps better known for its nearby hot springs and spas, but worth a day trip on its own.
