left you find Le Gelosie.
Gelosie is located just inside the city walls, in the historical
town centre, and more exactly at the corner between Via Dardano
and Piazza Signorelli. In the Piazza Signorelli stands the wonderful
namesake theatre (Signorelli), with its arcade where, in Spring
and Summer time, breakfast will be served.
Very interesting is the near Piazza della Repubblica, where the
beautiful medieval Palazzo Comunale stands tall. This is a place
usually used by artists (Andre Rieu) and set designers (the film
Under the Tuscan sun) as the setting for their concerts or artistic
and cultural performances. The best restaurants and wine shops
are within a stone’s throw.
