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.

The church is built on ruins of Roman and Etruscan origin. It was a victim of an earthquake in 1971 but has been restored. The history here is palpable. Enjoy this remarkable structure.

There are better Lazio hill towns in the area. Only stop by Tuscania if it's on the way to somewhere else.

Don't leave the area of Tuscania without seeing this church and its surrounding buildings. The views from this height across the countryside are spectacular and over to Tuscania itself. You enter the church through a gate and then see a beautiful old arch and then...More
