Ascoli Piceno is the city we have now called home for over two months and have had the opportunity to explore much of the centro storico and show some of our family this enchanting medieval city. There are still areas we have not yet explored but I plan to show a little bit of this city each week; focusing on one particular piazza, building or curiosity that we find. This is truly a gem undiscovered by most tourists.
The top photo is a view looking north over part of the city from Fortezza Pia with Mount Ascensione in the background. The bottom photo shows some of the medieval towers in the centro storico in the Porta Solesta area.
