You will seem to admire a fairytale place, where time has stopped, a small magical village, dominated by the imposing bell tower of the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul and with the unforgettable Medici Aqueduct, with its imposing tuff arches and in the background Palazzo Orsini, the ancient residence of the Orsini family who ruled over Pitigliano for about three centuries, from 1300 to 1600.
