Urban itinerary

Via Forestuzzo you enter the village to Port Loreggia. Continue along the road to Borgo Novello (now dedicated to R. Browning), lined with beautiful arcades and buildings, until you reach the Cathedral, at which you turn left.
In front of the facade is Palazzo della Loggia, (Today the Museum). I came out on the piazza along Via Cornaro, At its end is the entrance to the Castle, where he stayed from Caterina Cornaro 1489, with the Torre Mozza said Reata on the south-east (panorama).
From Piazza D'Annunzio continues by Dante (beautiful Gothic house at the end of the street) and by College (Villa Pasini on the right Scotti), at the end of which lies the former medieval convent of S. Peter. It therefore comes from the Gate of Col Marion, the only remaining intact in its medieval form.
From here you climb the cobbled street, for good stretch that runs along the walls of Carrara-blinds, to the Rock, with single tower verse is. Going back, continue remaining outside the walls until you reach the village of S. Catherine; it falls within the boundary of the Holy Spirit through port or S. Catherine, along Via Canova.
