Small medieval town on the top of the hill, hometown of Giovanni Boccaccio (the author of Decameron). Almost no tourists and no shops - authentic medieval atmosphere. There are some museums such as Boccaccio museum with a nice view from the top of the tower and palazzio pretorio with old frescoes, prisons and Etruscan museum.
