Travertine Stone Lab Tour from Ascoli Piceno

Get off the typical tourist trail, and visit a travertine rock quarry, during your stay in scenic Ascoli Piceno. A number of Italy’s famous landmarks are constructed from the stone, and travertine buildings can be seen all over the city center. Begin this morning tour at the Frazione Rosara quarry, where your guide—the quarry owner—will share information about its history. Then, you’ll be given chisels and other tools and can try your hand at sculpting the stone.

Unfortunately, this romantic little church was closed on the day we were there, but it's history fascinated us. We would have liked to have seen inside it. Built on top of Roman ruins, which are visible on the one side, in a recent archeological dig, a sarcophagus was found with two skulls and one only skeleton, which was very curious. We need to find out more about it. While the majority of points of interest in Italy also appear in English, unfortunately, the explanation about this church was only in Italian, but from the translation it appears that these are the remains of an old woman that were found in 2013

beautiful romanic church. unfortunately it is closed most of the time, so you need to find out when it's open. Several romanic churches in Ascoli could be described as jewells and there's a guided tour to see several of them (only in Italian, I suppose)
