Pitigliano and Sovana

Places to See

Hidden in the hills away from the Coast are the ancient hill towns of Pitigliano and Sovana. These are pictureque and well worth a visit, dating back to the 12th century but surrounded by the Etruscan lanes, which criss cross the area around these ancient citadels and date from pre-Roman times. Things move slowly here!

A mile or two further along the gorge is San Quirico and the trogolodyte village of Vitozza. Read about Vitozza here
