On line A, start your tour at Piazza Duomo and hop off at Via Garibaldi, the city's high street, which runs through the city center.

If you choose line B, start at Piazza Duomo and stop at Cristo Re. You can take a break at the twin Lakes of Ganzirri (Laghi di Ganzirri), a peaceful area away from the lively city life, or you can relax in the botanical gardens at Via Pietro Castelli.
