... was so wonderful. As we walked the streets the first night, we only heard Italian. We were clearly in a much less touristy town. We stopped for a wine tasting of the excellent local wines and found out that there was a music festival of sorts that night at bars across the town (which was pretty much two major streets through the center of the town).
