Just like Laurana's painting of the ideal city, this small town overlooking the hills of the Asso and Orcia valleys has a pure architectural quality which feels almost unreal. Its Renaissance perfection is complemented by its evocative and unusual street names. Franco Zeffirelli filmed some of the scenes of his movie "Romeo and Juliet" in this jewel of a town.
