A collage of soft-stone houses, palazzi and belfries pasted to a hillside, Todi looks freshly minted for a fairy tale. Wandering its steep backstreets is like playing a game of medieval snakes and ladders. The pace of life inches along, keeping time with the wildflowers and vines that bloom and ripen in the valley below.

Like rings around a tree, Todi is encircled by three sets of concentric walls, each from a different historical era: the innermost are Etruscan in origin, the middle ones date from the town’s Roman period, and the 'new' medieval walls survive from Todi's heyday as a prosperous centre in the Middle Ages.
