6. 9. 2018 16:35. We came to the church at the last minute. Thank you, lady at the door, for letting us look at the church and the crypt. The church is maintained, impressive. I recommend to all. Gate-money who wants to give. The tour...More
The church is locate don the top of a hill, with a nice view of Tuscania. What I like the most is the facade, with many representations biblical elements. Inside they are recovering old items, so I left some money to help them in restoring...More
Well worth a visit, this church is just outside the walled town of Tuscania - also worth a visit. Some of the murals are in poor condition but the inside of the church is beautiful. It suffered some damage in an earthquake in February 1971....More
This ornate church was competed in the 12th century, it has magnificent decorative features inside and out. The murals are not as well preserved as Maggiore Church nearby, but the mosaic floors, Etruscan tombs and some 11th and 12th century details make it outstanding.
We walked to the church of San Pietro from the town of Tuscania , it is a nice walk mainly uphill & we passed an old roman road that had been partly preserved. They are still working on trying to renovate the church as much...More
I visited by car, but it would be a fairly easy walk from the center of Tuscania. The church is ancient and very simple, entrance by a voluntary donation. I loved the grounds as well. Architecture is beautiful and I enjoyed taking many detail shots.
Day 3: Trip to Portovenere and Cinque Terre (5 Replies)
Buongiorno! Here's the report on Monday which was the dreaded and awaited Cinque Terre day. 😊 We woke up very early to catch the 7:36 Freccia train to La Spezia. The hotel receptionist had called a taxi for us (arranged it the night before) to take us to Campo di Marte station. We were there almost an hour before so maybe over-estimated the time needed for breakfast a bit. (But I hate rushing). There is a cafe inside the station but because we had time we decided to walk around the block...More

Bramante's Tempietto - help with hours and visiting (6 Replies)
Can anyone help with visiting the Tempietto in the church of San Pietro in Montorio? I would like to visit on a weekday in June. Are the hours on the website correct? Is it only open in the morning and then only for ONE hour in the afternoon from 3:00 - 4:00? Will the hours be extended during the summer months? Is it possible to make arrangements to see the INTERIOR of the Tempietto and if so, how do I do that? Has anyone visited the interior lately who can comment on this? I...More

Finally (11 Replies)
After reading about Montalcino in '02 I have wanted to go there. Well, finally I made it ... spent two nights there in September. I was really " impressed " with the steepness of some of the streets but it didn't stop me wandering and seeing as much as I could. I did get " geographically embarassed " ( never lost ) on one of my walks and found myself heading downwards towards some farming areas. After heading back in the right direction, always and ever uphill, I think I would still have...More
