Pitigliano is known as “The Little Jerusalem” . This is because from mid-16th century a numerous community of Jews, mostly fleeing from the city of Rome and papal oppression, decided to settle down there. Today one can visit the old Jewish Ghetto and its Sinagogue.
The houses of Sorano rise vertically clinging to a cliff of tufa. A maze of narrow streets where one can pleasantly walk around among the many craftsmen shops. Don’t miss the Orsini Fortress and the Masso Leopoldino rampart which offers a breathtaking view of the town.
The wines produced in this area are almost invariably extraordinarily good.
