SANT’ANTIMO

6 miles south of Montalcino or 20 miles northeast of Grosseto is this sublime Romanesque church (9th c.) in a most romantic setting. Worth a journey!

TUSCANIA

Find a way to visit this Etruscan town near Viterbo in order to see the Church of San Pietro, my favorite in all of Italy. San Pietro waits in a mysterious setting with Etruscan tombs inside the building and legends of Etruscan royalty buried in the necropolis beneath the nave.
