Small town. Village really. But very nice. You could stay a while, because there's lots of stores and services--and festivals. Taste the oranges and the fresh pasta and the bread. Have a glass of Vernaccia in the little bar in the main square. It's the Sardinian life all laid out for you properly.

Lush green and quiet in Rome? You might want to look into the Monteverde neighborhood.

We don't often talk sandwiches, but when we do, we talk with our mouths full.
Il Fatty in Massa is sandwich heaven, where you'll find the familiar and the sublime, especially if you find the fourth stomach of a cow sublime you'll find it in the lampredotto sandwich.
