Pizzo's medieval old town is a maze of interconnecting alleys and ancient houses built steeply up the hillside. There are no cars here, and climbing up and down steps is a must. It's minutes from the Piazza, with easy access to shops, cafes and restaurants. The nearest beach is Pizzo Marina, which is 5 minutes walk downhill from the Piazza. The centro storico is the heart of Pizzo, and you will be living closely with local people in an area full of characteristic local colour.
