Nestling at the foot of the Apennines, Pistoia - Italian Capital of Culture in 2017 - comes into its own in summer with its Blues Festival and the traditional Bear Joust (Giostra dell'Orso). Pistoia then surprises visitors with its series of quintessentially Italian monuments, clustered around the medieval Piazza del Duomo, and a network of narrow streets and medieval shops with stone stalls. There is certainly plenty to occupy visitors to this low-profile town.
