*The Village of Ambra

The Village of Ambra is one of the oldest in the area.  Once a feudal stronghold belonging to the 13th-century Guidi overlords, it has retained a charming medieval feel in the old center, where twisty and narrow streets lead up to the center of the old fortified town.  In summer, concerts and “cinema under the stars” take place in the old square, enclosed on all sides by the ancient castello. As the paving of the square is on a slant, you have to remember to bring something to prop up the back legs of your chair, otherwise you will be sitting at a slightly odd angle the entire evening. There are two good restaurants in this town, one of which has not changed since the 1960s, as well as a shoe outlet with prices that beat Prada . Ambra is defiinitely worth a visit.
