Really awesome city just 90km from Rome. The historic center is like to be back in the medieval era. All corners has something that makes it special.

The medieval centre of San Pellegrino is worth every step - some magnificent architecture, fantastic quaint buildings and typical Italian sights are well worth the walking.
