If you are wondering what to visit while in town, another landmark of the city is the 14th century Oratory of Saint John the Baptist. This chapel depicts Saint John’s life in late Gothic style. The frescoes were grandly depicted by brothers Lorenzo and Jacopo Salimbeni and what is commendable that even 600 years later they seem so alive
