Sorano, like Pitigliano, rises up from a tufa rock spur. The houses look as if they are locked into one another, sculpted directly out of the rock.

The fascinating historic centre has as its boundary by the imposing Orsini Fortress and Leopoldo Mass, ancient rock fortifications dating from the ‘700’s”.

The village is reached through the northern arch, from where the main road commences and from which numerous alleyways and tiny streets make the historic centre quite unique. Its structure has remained intact and looks much like it would have looked during medieval times.

It is a pleasure to visit Sorano during the low season: while walking through semi-deserted alleys, one can breathe the air of olden times, a really special experience.
