Sulla via degli Etruschi tra Sorano, Sovana e Pitigliano

The first town to be visited in the suggested itinerary for this tour is Sorano, an ancient Etruscan village built upon a tuff hill. Here you can stop in the old town center and have a walk along its narrow streets and alleys, taking beautiful pictures from panoramic viewpoints.
From here, in approximately half an hour, you can reach Pitigliano, the greatest town in this area, which is also an ancient Etruscan settlement. Besides walking around the old town center, full of medieval buildings, where the houses and the churches are all made of tuff, it will be possible to visit, for those who wish to, the Jewish Synagogue, one of the most beautiful Jewish temples that can be admired in Tuscany. Pitigliano is also the recommended place to have lunch in one of its typical restaurants, so as to taste local specialties such as wild boar, truffle and porcini mushrooms.
On the way back, you can stop for a short visit in Sovana, which was another important Etruscan village. The Cathedral is the main medieval monument in the old town center: inside the church you can admire the oldest pre-Romanesque ciborium (VIII century A.D.) in Tuscany.

Duration of the itinerary: 8/9 hours.
