    Cori, a small town near Rome is nestled on a hill and still supported by the original ancient cyclopic walls, where remains of temples, ruins and churches accompany the visitor through to the 20th Century.

    A place of mythology (Jason and Argonauts, Ulysses), the site of numerous battles (first with the Volsci, Latins and Romans and later as a refuge for Lucio Silla during the war with Mario), and currently divided into three Rioni corresponding to the three accesses into the town.

    To the present day, a traditional horse race (Palio delle Contrade) and a costume parade are held during the summer months, which makes Cori an enchanting place.
