  • More than positive experience! The old town is charming, everything is clean, tidy, ancient and well maintained by the employees but also by the citizens themselves! In front of the cathedral always stop to chat 5 the 6 elderly people who discreetly seem to keep tabs on the whole square! Good luck to those who decide to climb the two towers (big tower and one of the twin towers), we say that it takes good calves for all of St. Giminian, but the towers are challenging, despite the reward of the panorama! It seems that the most popular attraction for tourists is the well... Full of money of every color, paper, metal and country... I hope they don't believe it's trevi fountain... The center is overgrown with beautiful gray horns, they make a similar verse to that of green parrots.

  • It's a beautiful city. We arrived by car, parked on P2 (Via dei Fossi, 1) nearby there is a bus stop and entrance to the old town. And if you go through the park down turn on (left, right, right) and on the track you can fill up to the supermarket, it is easy to find on the map, but the road to it is a little confusing. Also in the center there is a terrific ice cream (but in my opinion the most delicious ice cream we have had in the city of Todi) and many shops with cheeses, prosciutto and truffles.
